Depends: See your gyn and get checked out. If no major problems found, consider magnesium supplementation, and possibly low dose iodine supplementation as well. Vitamin e as mixed tocopherols may also help.

Yes that can occur: As a symptom of pms - it is due to fluid retention in the breast which leads to pain.

Decreasing caffeine can sometimes decrease the mnount of fluid retention and therefore breast tenderness.
