In brief: Probably OK
You have breast pain, which is a very common complaint.
It can affect one or both breasts. Sometimes it is caused by fibrocystic (lumpy) breast disease. If you have large breasts, it's possible your sleep position is contributing to the pain. You should have an exam by a practitioner who really spends some time examining your breasts. A thorough breast exam takes at least 3 minutes per breast!

I agree. Sometimes women who wear underwire bras have tenderness along the underwire. If you are waering an underwire bra and laying on your side, the underwire might be causing some of you pain. But as above you need to get it looked at.

It is best to get seen for this.
It is more likely nothing to worry about but is worth an evaluation. Cutting down on caffeine and adding primrose oil may help. If this is the start of fibrocystic breast, the other breast will catch up and will hurt also. Remember it can be something simple like an ill fitting bra.
