I hope someone here is able to shed some light on this issue. I have been to several Drs. over the past 3-4 years for pain in both breasts. However, the left axillary area is the most painful. I have been to physical therapy to treat the condition with deep-heat ultrasound waves twice with no noticeable progress. The left breast has "puffy" swelling in the axillary (lymph) area and it is very tender when touched. I have not felt any lumps and have had 2-3 clear ultrasounds. The pain is worse before my menstrual cycle, but it is continuous throughout the month. When I am in the shower, occasionally, there is slight redness and mild itching that goes away after a few minutes of being at room temp again. About 2 months ago I was diagnosed with several thyroid nodules, but all of my thyroid function tests have been within normal ranges. I have had the nodule for about the same length of time as the breast pain. None of the Drs. that I have seen believe that there is a correlation between my breast pain and my thyroid, but they have not performed any tests or given me any medications to treat either condition. I had a biopsy on the largest (~1.91cm) nodule a few weeks ago, but the tests were inconclusive due to the incompetents of the Dr. who now wants to try again 2-3 more times. So obviously, I'm looking for someone else. If you are in the Little Rock, Arkansas area, I would appreciate any suggestions.
