Nipple pain: 1. Paget's disease of the nipple - This occurs when externally invisible cancer inside the breast spreads to the nipple and areola area. The areolar area looks as if it has been infected. It looks, red, swollen and is painful but actually this is caused by blockage of small channels called lymphatics which drain the fluid from the areolar area. This blockage is caused by rapid proliferation of cancer cells within the breast tissue. Sometimes the breast cancer may not be apparent even on a mammography.
2. It could also be caused by allergies or sensitivities to various detergents, soaps, weather, fabric, etc. Some women are sensitive to the plastics in breast shells, nipple shields, and pump flanges.
3. Repeated friction like say prolonged exercise or jogging.
4. Vigorous sexual activity could be a cause.
5. Infections of the breast has to be ruled out. Infections could lodge on already traumatized nipples. Diabetes is another risk factor for skin infections because micro-organisms love the sugary cells in people with diabetes. Nipple pain with fever is once reason you should visit the doctor because of the concern for infections. ...Read more

Sudden sharp pain in right chest started 24 hours ago, hurts to breathe, can't sleep because of pain. Go to emergency room? 42 yrs, male, inactive...Took tylenol and aspirin and the pain is much better if the pain goes away should I just forget it?

This: This may well be a musculoskeletal pain related to prior activity, but other causes are possible. A blood clot traveling to your lungs can cause this type of pain. Particularly if you have a history of blood clots, you should have this looked into by your doctor. Bedrest, cigarette smoking, a family history of blood clots, fractures in the pelvis or legs, heart failure, obesity, recent surgery, blood that is more likely to clot (hypercoagulability), cancer, taking Estrogens or birth control pills all increase the risk of blood clots forming. Blood clots in legs veins are most common in adults over age 60, but can occur at any age. Sitting for long periods when traveling can increase the risk of blood clots. This most often occurs when one or more of the risk factors listed above are also present.
Warning signs of a blood clot traveling to your lungs include: unexplained sudden onset of shortness of breath, chest pain or discomfort that worsens when you take a deep breath or when you cough, feeling lightheaded, dizziness, fainting, rapid pulse, sweating, coughing up blood, or a sense of anxiety or nervousness. ...Read more

You may consider an anti-inflammatory medication. ...Read more

Symptoms behind nipple that is intermittent probably related to fibrocystic disease where fluid in duct system is partially blocked causing some discomfort.
