A 34-year-old female asked:
Disclaimer

Sharp burning shooting pains in breast/underarm that only disappear during my period - ultrasound showed nothing (during period). What could be the problem? Would birth control help? Very frustrated!

Breast pain: You may have premenstrual syndrome manifesting this way. Try to reduce caffeine intake, try vitamins e supplement. Birth control pills may make it worse, but they make it better - depends.
