Could my problem be hormone related?

From: Alex_1974 - 10 years 39 weeks ago

I’m a 36 nearly 37 year old male.  I am obese (300lbs), diabetic (type 2) and require medication to control hypetension.  I take the following medications – Metformin, Pioglitazone, Victoza (liraglutide), Amlodipine, Ramipril, Bendroflumethiazide, Asprin and Statin. 

I have a strange and embarrassing problem.  I hope someone out there may be able to offer some insight.  I have always had sensitive nipples but in the last few days sensitivity in my left nipple has gone crazy.  I can barely stand to have anything touch the nipple – even wearning a shirt is uncomfortable. The sensaton is pretty much constant and it is affecting sleep. The feeling comes from stimulation of the nipple itself and also at other times  from the below the nipple without any stimulation of the nipple.  The sensation is mostly kind of what you would associate with sex but sometimes it can be a light pain/ itch.  Also along the left arm, chest and abdomen I have what feel like small muscle spasms – although I’m not sure if these aren't just a reaction to the feeling from the nipple and a reaction to try and suppress the sensation. 

Haven't quite plucked up the courage to see my doctor yet but I'm trying to look at this from all angles. I wonder considering my weight and diabetes whether this might be a hormone problem?

Any advice or comment would be welcome.
