    Sounds like an infection or some kind of blockage in your lymph gland Laura. Maybe going to another doctor and getting another opinion might help. My left breast is often sensitive or sore and I know that it is mainly the lymph in the armpit area. Don't give up sweetie. Go to the hospital emergency if you have to. There has to be an answer. If you had been nursing a baby I would say that it is an engorgement or Mastitis. Persevere in getting a diagnosis. Poor sweetie! Sorry you are in pain! Maggie xx

      If I were you Laura I would just go to the hospital emergency. They tend to really look for the source of the problem. They have no choice but to do further tests. You can't stay like that! Please just get yourself to the ER. They may take the initiative of admitting you if they must. Maggie xx

    Hi Laura,

    I'm so sorry to read that you are in so much pain and can't understand why somone is not looking into it further.  I agree with Maggie, that it sounds like an infection at the very least  and would strongly recommend that you get yourself to A&E.  Please let us know how you get on. x

      Well at least they have not found any serious cause Laura. That is one positive anyway. Meanwhile, Try putting hot compresses on it which might help. Pain is a burden but don't give up sweetie, you will get to the bottom of it eventually. Ibuprofen might help to take the edge off. We feel for you sweetie! xo

      I think your worry is making it worse sweetie. Since they did all these tests, and found nothing serious at least you can be reassured. I often have pain in my left breast as well. I have had some Lymph drainage natural treatments and I try doing it myself as well. It seems to help. Take something for the pain and try to relax your body and mind Laura. A soak in a hot tub may help as well. It could even be a cyst in the Breast. That can cause extreme pain. It won't last forever Laura. This pain will end.
