All the symptoms of pregnancy, but I am definitely not

User Profile
I am a 29 year old female. My body's been changing a lot these past two years, but getting worse these past few months. I'm having ALL the symptoms of pregnancy, but I am definitely not pregnant. My doctor did blood & urine tests for thyroid problems, xray for brain tumor, EKG for heart problems, and nothing comes up. She says everything came back normal. Yet, my left breast leaks white liquid (milk?) and my right breast leaks a clear liquid, sometimes white. My major complaints are: my breasts feel full/engorged (painful) and leaking; discomfort/ pressure under my right collarbone; tenderness above my right breast, right below my collarbone; shooting pain throughout my left arm then gets swollen/stiff (like an early heart attack sign); pregnancy symptoms (major mood swings, food cravings, sudden weight gain, extreme tireness, foggy memory/thinking, strong sense of smell); my eyes take a few seconds to focus in on things; vaginal dryness; and pain during sex. What can it be?

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The vaginal dryness and pain during or after intercourse could be suggestive of vaginal infections. Vaginal swab/smear test done will help to identify causative agent and get you started on appropriate treatment. If infective cause is detected, get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection.
The breast symptoms and discharge could be due to engorgement of breasts and hormonal derangements. Prolactin levels should be checked to rule out chances of hyperprolactinemia. Mammogram done will also help to rule out any other serious issues.
If pregnancy is suspected (as suggested by symptoms of mood swings, food cravings, weight gain, increased tiredness, foggy memory, increased sensitivity to smell etc), consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
