Q. Both my breasts hurt and are very sore. I didn’t do anything out of the ordinary that would cause pain. They hurt whether I’m walking or laying or down, they still hurt. And this happened overnight. Taking OTC pain relievers don't help.

A:Pain is the most common breast complaint and is typically hormonally related. However, if there is a focal area of pain that persists through a menstrual cycle, a diagnostic workup with mammography and ultrasound is recommended to make sure there isn’t something else going on.
