Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
Are the breasts hurting or causing any symptoms?
Pain or discomfort?
Nipples are very sensitive and often erect
Have you, recently or in the past, had a mammogram?
yes just a month ago and it iwas normal
Do you have any other symptoms?
Other than what you mentioned.
Have you had your thyroid tested in the past?
ys and it was a littel low...inerseting I seem to be gainin weight on my hips and thighs as well
How low was it?
I mean do you remember the TSH level?
on the border line to have thyroxine - a low dose
Are you on any medications for anything at the moment?
So you are not taking thyroxine at the moment?
no i foudn that it gave me palpapartions but then I was in v ery bisy peiod at work so ti could have been little but of stress
I think that with the symptoms that you are having you should have your hormones tested i.e. I would retest your thyroid levels, I would also test your prolactin levels as well.The increased size of the breast may be due to your overall weight gain.Weight gain and the increased weight around your hips could be due to the fact that you have gone through menopause.
is it normal to have erect nipples even when you are not cold or sexually aroused?
It is not normal but it can happen and it is not something that I would worry about too much.
