I have pain (heavy, aching) in both breasts and one is leaking fluid. I'm not pregnant, however, the pain is similar to pregnancy pain. Any ideas?

In brief: Check Prolactin
You may have galactorrhea (milk production) when not pregnant/nursing caused by an excess of the hormone, prolactin.
A simple blood test can confirm. If prolactin is high then a pituitary MRI will check the source of the excess prolactin (usually from a pituitary adenoma).
