Hey all...How is everyone feeling? I've been on Oxycontin 80 MG 3 times daily & Percocet 10 MG 4 times daily...Lately I've developed pain in both nipples (I'm male) with the slightest touch. I'm wondering if there could be any connection to the pain meds I've been on for a long time? Has anyone else had similar symptoms? Thank you for any feedback.

Long-term opioid use reduces testosterone levels. So, your estrogen may be causing the sensitivity. You should get your testosterone levels checked & you may need a testosterone supplement.
C4-T4 Scoliosis (disk degeneration, stenosis, narrowed neuroforamen, bone spurs), RT hip and SI joint damage from car accident. Also, pectus excavatum, supraventricular tacycardia and mitral valve prolapse syndrome.
Current meds: Ultram ER 300mg daily, breakthrough - hydrocodone 10mg, or oxycodone 5-7.5mg. .25-.5mg ativan as needed for sleep, Verapamil 240mg SR (for tachycardia). [/gray

I had the same sensation as you w/ nipple pain! Three years after prostate cancer surgery and taking pain meds for C/P!! Yes, it definitely could be your testosterone is low, that was the first of many symptoms I had before being diognosed w/ low T. (castration levels!) PLEASE get yourself a blood test for testosterone before other symptoms such as low libido, depression and hating life in genneral begin!!!
I haven't been around lately but will keep an eye on this post incase you have any questions!!!
