Fibrocystic changes: You could have fibrocystic changes. This is the most common cause of breast pain. It can be aggravated by caffeine, stress, menstrual cycle and hormonal supplements. In addition, you may want to get fitted by a bra specialist to make sure you have the right size, which will make you more comfortable. Vitamin e works for breast pain in some.
