Please help
Not sure if you can help me, but worth a try. My bra size is a 34DD. I am 27 and weigh 52kg. Is this normal? I suffer from shoulder pains and backaches and headaches. If i wear a bikini top (halter) i am guaranteed to have a headache / migraine for 3 or 4 days after wearing such top. My breasts are so heavy that the bikini strap marks actually indent into my neck and stay there for at least 2 days. Will a medical aid pay for a breast reduction? Is it an option to consider? If so, should i wait until after i have had kids? I really cant take this anymore. Thank you for your assistance.

A breast reduction is certainly an option. If your doctor can convince the medical aid that there is a strong medical reason for the breast reduction, they should pay.
