Pain in the Nips

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Okay ladies, I've got a nipple question. Sorry if this is TMI but this problem is starting to affect my work outs.



About three days ago my nipples started hurting while working out. It's only while I'm working out and if they "perk up". They're fine once they're soft and don't seem to bother me unless I'm working out.



Any ideas on what could be causing this?

Consult some doctors because this could be some symptoms associated with disease. hope it doesn't link that way.

I've heard of people who have nipple chafing when they run, which seems to be what HoodedClawJen posted. All of the people I've heard this from have been men though.

Does your bra fit snugly in the cups? You're probably chaffed. You may want to add band-aids for a couple of days for the tenderness to go away.

FWIW, I giggled too. I've heard of this pretty often, actually. I think it's not only chafing, but the sweating involved somehow. I've never heard it called "joggers nipple" though. *gigglesnort* An extra layer of cushion between nips and bra is what works, usually.

Don't feel bad, I laughed too. Rofl.



I never claimed to be the pinnacle of maturity anyway.

That's not fair. If men get to be topless, women should too.

Agreed! Although I feel like it would cause car accidents...distractions and all

I was all prepared to give a serious answer and then then the 'Joggers Nipple' bomb was dropped... I hope band aids fix it, Nickle! I'm, obviously!, not all that into excercise but I get nipple pain dues to none of my bras fitting just right when I'm between sizes.
