Been experiencing pain in my left breast?

I am thirty and trying to get pregnant, so far no look. My periods are extremely irregular, I had my last period over six months ago when I came off the pill. For the past few days I have been experiencing pain in my left breast. Today the pain has stayed with me all day normally it comes and goes. I also had a pain in my left armpit last week but taught nothing of it. Can you please help me, I'm very worried. I also have an appointment made for the doctor but that's not until next Friday.

Hello Joey123,

The pain you are having is normally caused by swelled up lymphatic glands which may continue to your armpit area.

The other possibility could be that you may have some pinched nerves in you mid & upper back areas. They would need to be reset.
