Breast tenderness: Breast tenderness before your period can be helped by decreasing your intake of salt and caffeine. NSAIDs such as naproxen or ibuprofen have been show to help. A good support bra is also good and many of my patients swear by evening primrose oil and/or vitamin E. Hope this helps.
