a few prawns short of a galaxy

My boobs are veiny and painful, and I can't take painkillers...what now?

Me again, for once with a question not related to BV. In fact, it doesn't even have to do with my vagina at all.

Last month I noticed some breast swelling and tenderness that I blamed on messing with the amount of Prozac I was taking. Eventually it went away, so I figured that was it. Wrong. I woke up a few days ago and the boobs that had been fine the day before were killing me.

The veins are bulging and I've noticed some new ones leading down to the nipple on one that weren't there before. My nipples brushing against my shirt is enough to make me want to cry, and even putting on deodorant is painful because even my underarms hurt. They don't really look bigger to me but I assume they must be.

Could this just be a new regular PMS thing for me? I've never heard of getting new boob veins during PMS. Can that happen? Google keeps saying it means I'm pregnant, but that's highly unlikely. Is it normal for PMS symptoms to change so drastically? And is there anything I can do to ease the pain? I'm not supposed to take painkillers with the medications I'm on. Getting a decent bra would probably help and I'll get on that...but beyond that? Oh, I have no caffeine in my diet.
