Starting 24 hours ago, both my nipples have become erect on their own (without physical or mental stimulation) and are now 0.7 cm erect and very painful/tender/sore. Can you please tell me what could possibly be causing this? Note I have recently had both breast cancer and pregnancy tests, and neither are positive. Thanks.

  • 1 May 2010 - My 49 year old spouse has an exactly similar problem - came on overnight, has stayed with her for three days now. She's also negative for pregnant or cancer. So far, the only thing we've seen that makes sense is menopause - specifically, too much estrogen and not enough progesterone. MAYBE she's getting a bit too much sodium and is retaining water. I guess we'll find out, gradually - I'll add to this thread when we know.
