Breast Augmentation...I need answers, not ridicule.. thank you

I have breast implants and have been running a lot. It feels like the muscle in front of my right breast is strained..can that happen from running a lot?

I am no expert but I would guess that could be one of many things causing the pain. I would say look into getting an VERY supportive HIGH IMPACT sport bra.

I have natural breasts and running without the proper support garment will cause sore muscles and tender nipples. Sports bra, a little more snug then you think it should be.

The positioning of your implants may have shifted from the running or the build-up of scar tissue (have you been doing daily massage like you're supposed to?), so you're feeling pain in weird places.

Check out the sports bra threads for some great advice.

I have been massaging and doing exercises, I am just afraid I have developed capsular contraction. I hope not, but who knows. I have been wearing a really supportive sports bra and an under shirt, it could also be the muscles in my back that are knotted and bothering my chest ( has happened more than once) I am kind of a tensed up person.

I called him, he said that by running so much I probably put stress on my back which then put stress on my chest muscle and is making the implant squeez and feel uncomfortable...he recommended a massage...I am not going to disagree!
I just saw him about a month ago and he said everything felt fine then and that nothing could have developed that fast...maybe I am a hypocondriac (or however you spell it) Sometimes it freaks me out that there are implants in me!! I'll get over it over time...thanks for your help!!

A couple of things (no pun intended) :)

How long ago did you have your surgery?
What is your age?
Were you physically active prior to surgery or have you ramped it up?
When did the pain start? How long does it last? Type of pain?

A really good sports bra

See link below to see how much a good bra can help with "bounce". It's definitely not the prettiest of bra's but it's by far the best sports bra that I've found.

Your pain sounds an awful lot like that of two large-chested athletic females I know who got reduction surgery to fix it. I may be joining their club soon myself because I'm sick of the constant problems with my upper back.

I had my surgery about 5 months ago, I was VERY active before, more than I am now, I am 22, the reason behind the surgery was a fluxuation in weight and the effects it had on my breasts...I got married and I wanted the problem fixed. The pain doesnt last long, just for a few minutes after I am done working out, its a very dull pain...almost like pulling...

I experienced something similar around the 6 - 8 month mark (I have had mine for over a year), because it is happens after your workout it is probably not capusular contraction. Get a REALLY godd sports bra (I have "moving comfort"), and it holds evrything in place. You need underwire support. Also try reducing the running, I walked the treadmill for the first 7 months using high speed and incline to reduce the jarring.
It feels almost like a twinge and a yank, you should be fine, just slow down a bit.
