Hi. Just thought I would try and sell some advice. I had my baby 7 months ago. 6 months I have had issues with my left breast. Very itchy, painful. I have a painful shoulder and surrounding area, not sure if this is MSK, currently awaiting an appt for physio.
I have been to the breast clinic twice this year. One time I had a small lump under armpit which turned out to be a cyst and nipple discharge coming from said breast, they did an ultrasound on the nipple and found nothing. I haven’t seen any discharge since in my bra. However I have a constant intense itch, the other breast itches occasionally but the left very very itchy, no redness, swelling or rash evident. It’s also quite painful.
Should I make yet another request to be seen at the breast clinic? Would they see me for the itchiness? I have noticed my left nipple erects but not as big or as long as the right, as in it’ll soften way before the other? I’ve had this for a while.
I just need some reassurance or advice as I am convinced it something much more sinister. I’ve been getting pain in my knee too and worried I’ve got something and it’s spread further.
I am a nurse and know too much and Ita just taking over my life.
Thanks for reading
