Unless the discharge: If the discharge is blood stained, i would worry about it. I would have you watch it for 2-3 weeks more and see the trend for improvemnt or worsening. If it is getting worse then show it to your doctor.

Hmmm: Excessive nipple stimulation can cause those symptoms. Also elevated prolactin level may contribute as well. Please get evaluated.
