Hi all

I was wondering if anyone has any soothing remedies for extremely tender breasts.
Sometimes a week before im due to get my period, my breasts get tender, but this months they are seriously hurting, I cannot even touch them.

Please your ideas would be wonderful.

Hi Hurting

You can change to Ricoffy Decaf. It taste like normal coffee but there is no caffeine in it. I've been off caffeine now for 5 months. And the decaff takes the craving away for the caffeine... I hope it helps for you.

Good luck

Hi Taz

You know you have got me thinking, I have been drinking more coffee than usual the last two weeks. Thanks for your suggestion, I will give it a try.

Dear Hurting

I don't have a remedy, but I know how to prevent it. I use to be the same, but since I cut out caffeine, I don't have that problem anymore. Not sure why, but if I drink a cup of coffee before my periods, the problem comes back. I'm only drinking decaf now, and it made a huge difference...
