I have been diagnosed with "extensive fibrocystic changes" and right now am having pain in my chest, armpit, and down my arm and even into my back shoulder blade. I am concerned b/c the pain is pretty severe, but I've had CBEs by both an integrative practitioner (my regular doc) and a breast surgeon, as well as ultrasound and thermography. I am 30 years old, and have just finished a very rigorous grad degree while also teaching full time, and I believe stress and overconsumption of caffeine for 5-10 years have done this to me. Starting a no-caffeine phase (on day 12 currently), and continuing to clean up my diet and exercise more, as well as on progesterone theraphy, iodine, vit. D., other supplements, and a Chinese med. combo called "Resolve Internal Fire." My doc wants another thermography in 2 months to follow up--hoping for the best.
