Sore breasts, milky discharge, what's up?

Warning - may be TMI. I'm not sure what to make of this, but I hope someone might have some advice for me. I've had really tender breasts for over 3 weeks. Because it has been going on so long, I have my doubts that it is cyclic in nature. I've noticed several times that they felt much like they did when I was nursing (although that's going back 7 years), where they just feel heavy, full, and tingly like with milk letdown. I'm small busted, so I definitely notice any increased size! Well, tonight they seemed very sore and felt engorged, so I pushed on them a little and I noticed some drops of milky discharge coming from the nipple. Very weird to me. Has anyone else noticed this and what could it mean? I hope this doesn't offend anyone, I'm just kind of concerned as to what could be causing this or if it's normal. Thanks.

Hello CAmich,

Well, I know the technical term is Galactorrhea. It can be a hormonal imbalance, some medications (anitdepressants), and some herbs cause this. This may interest you, men can get it too. I would call your doctor and make an appointment and he will probably check your hormone levels at this point.

Good luck,
