Breast sensitity

I am 51 and post menopausal.  Periodically I feel sensitivity in my left breast. Do not feel any lumps or see any changes in my breasts.Last mammogram was July last year and was normal. Unable to get into my doctor for 1 month so wanted to see if this is a concern or just a hormonal issue.

By sensitivity, do you mean skin tingling, or do you mean the kind of painful breasts that sometimes come before a period? If the latter, have you had your hormone levels checked since menopause?

Hi.I had my thyroid checked last year and it was 3.93 and normal range was 3.74.  Also pain went away for a few days and is back today.  Feels like a scrape or a burn as opposed to PMS pain.

Hi, when you say you are post menopause, you mean you've gone longer than a year with no period?  Just asking because I'm waiting for that year.  I was almost there a year ago and then darn it, I had to start over because I got a couple of periods. I'm older than you and can't get this menopause thing over with! Sigh.  But one thing I notice is that I have a lot of breast sensitivity as my hormones fluctuate. Can you describe your sensitivity more so we can understand exactly what you are talking about?

Hello. Yes, been longer than 1 year without a period.  The sensitivity went away for a few days and back today. Feels more like a scratch or burn as opposed to a PMS pain.  I have a doctors appointment on Tuesday  to hopefully get some kind of insight on    what is going on.

Hello. Thank you for getting back with me.  Wanted to elaborate on my concern.  The sensitivity almost feels like when you come in contact with something cold . Doesnt feel like the skin and lasts about  a second.  I had a full blood panel in September last year and thyroid was .02 above normal range.  Went through menopause 5 years ago and no issues except occasional night sweats  -which are nothing like the "real transition".  No changes in breast size, or discharge.  No other tell tell signs except this random "ping" of tingling.
