A Few Ideas: Sore breasts are typically sore due to hormonal changes. Fibrocystic disease can cause soreness as well. Most common to feel sore right before your period, as that's when Progesterone is the highest. As you also mentioned, pregnancy can cause soreness as well. If this is a possibility, you'll want to take a home pregnancy test to be certain. If you feel a lump or mass --> go to dr right away.

Yes: Boy is it! one of the hormones of pregnancy stimulates the breasts to enlarge and start producing milk. This can make your breasts very sore. A good supportive bra can help.

Sure: Any disruption in the menstrual cycle with hormone imbalances can cause these types of symptoms. Of course, many other sources can be the cause for fatigue but most often breast tenderness is fibrocystic or estrogen dominant in origin.
