In brief: Breast pain tips

Mastalgia or breast pain can occur for a variety of reasons.
Try an elimination diet, limiting caffeine (tea, coffee, cola & chocolate). Recognize the correlation with pms and breast tenderness. Some advocate vitamin E (400-800iu/d) to reduce the estrogen stimulation on your breast tissue. Birth control pills can also exacerbate but check with your OB before stopping them.
