See doctor. While breast pain can be associated with the time period before one's period starts due to effects of progesterone on the breast tissue, it sounds like your pain is excessive and difficult to live with.

If caught early can antibiotics successfully treat Lyme disease?

YES. Antibiotics are highly successful in treating early lyme disease; the earlier treatment begins after infection the better. However, many doctors give inadequate treatment, such as Doxycycline 100 mg 2x/day for 10 days.
