I am borderline underweight and I haven't got my period in ages. As of a few weeks ago, I noticed that my nipples have been red and much more pointy and protruding that ever. They're also somewhat painful/uncomfortable to the touch. What could be going on here? I hate it!

Welcome to ehealthforum

Irregular periods and sore breasts are suggestive of any uterine or ovarian underlying disorder along with deranged hormonal levels.It can be due to ovarian cysts,PID,Thyroid disorder,pregnancy etc.
You require a clinical examination along with investigations like USG and Hormonal analysis to rule out the exact cause.Kindly visit a Gynaecologist soon for evaluation.
