I had an even worse experience. I has really swollen and painful breasts, thinking I' m preggies (been trying for ages!!) did a urine test. Negative. I sat in a nice hot bath that evening and actually had a clear liquid leaking out of one of my nipples!! Decided I HAD to be, did a blood test. Negative. I went to see the doctor, and it was simply hormones.
It could be pregnancy, it could be hormones. Only ONE way to find out....
