I am a 77 year old female suffering from sore nipples. Cause? Cure? Thanks

I am a 77 year old female suffering from sore nipples. Cause? Cure? Thanks

Several causes.: Might be hormonal more than anything else. For something bad ( cancer) to happen and affect both nipples at the same time would be extremely unlikely. But an elevated prolactin can do this ( many medicines can do this, ie. Meclopropamide), and a low thyroid will also elevate prolactin levels. Finally, if you are using a new detergent for your bra, this might causes some reaction. ...Read more

Protect them: If you sleep on your stomach that pressure will decrease blood flow and impair healing and perpetuate your symptoms. Is your bra creating pressure or chafing as well?

Wear a nigthguard: If you can wear a nightguard during the day, and night it will prevent you from clenching your back teeth. This is usually due to stress.

Do i need to see a neurologist for tmj, jaw soreness, biting down teeth too hard?

Do i need to see a neurologist for tmj, jaw soreness, biting down teeth too hard?

With those issues: I would not go for a neurological visit as a first step. Find a dentist that treats TMJ issues. If your dentist does not treat tmj, seek a dentist who trained with the peter dawson center or the l d pankey institute. Tmj issues are many times related to malocclusion which affects jaw muscles. A thorough exam can confirm a diagnosis and help form a treatment plan. ...Read more
