I am not sure if I am posting this on the right MB here at HW---but, thought since I have at least four of these things in my rt. breast---I'd come to this MB!
Anway---I was confirmed as having 4 (although it feels like tons)--fibroid cysts in my right breast back in June----Oh my GEEZ--they are painful! I had a specialist tell me there's not much to do but maybe take ibuprofen--and they will go away after I go through menopause (I am 39---my mom went into menopause at 42---a girl can hope)!
Anway---my questions are:
* can you get fibroids anywhere around the tissue of your breast? I am asking b/c I have been having a lot of undiagnosed PAIN in my right upper quadrant---ribs, under my arm, rt. arm, mid back, shoulder etc.... Can fibroid cysts be there also?
For months---I have had tests done on various back/gall bladder/ type pain--all coming up empty---had B12 test done b/c my right arm goes numb (negative test), Over the past 8 months--the pain varies in intensity--but, it is always so painful in my right breast---and under that arm, rib, etc......
My midwife told me to take evening primrose (1000 mg?)/day---SIGH! Helped a little
Right now--I am having some horrible neck/shoulder pain and am taking prednisone (20 mg/3 at a time/for 5 days)----to try and help with the inflammation/pain--but, thought I would ask here anyway? Anyone help?
