I have sore tender breasts all the time not just when im menstruating?

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. If you are over 40, then you should have a mammogram and ultrasound. Please get evaluated by a breast specialist. This can be normal for some women.

Why are become breast tender before 15days menses coming.,?

Why are become breast tender before 15days menses coming.,?

Estrogen: The estrogen level increases during the cycle until just before your period when it falls, then starts increasing again as you start the next cycle. By mid-cycle (the time frame that you note - 15 days before your period) your estrogen level is high enough to stimulate the breast tissue making the breasts tender. For many women a vitamin E supplement will decrease or stop that tenderness.

Foot Swelling: Foot swelling could be from inadequate venous return, kidney issues, inactivity, and many other mechanical foot issues. Definitely work on the kidney issues you have, and also spend time elevating your feet, doing hourly ankle circles, get OTC support hose, and if inactive, try to walk more. See a podiatrist, if the swelling and pain do not get better with this to see if you have an actual injury
