BFing and horrible back/shoulder blade/neck pain!!?

I have the most intense shooting pain from my shoulder blade up to my neck that started once my milk came in and hurts most when I'm bf-ing or take a deep breath. I know this is not uncommon but have no clue what to do other than applying heat and taking motrin which isn't helping much.any tips? I posted this on the BF board too.

  • My only thought is to make sure when you are nursing you are bringing LO to the boob rather than taking the boob to LO.  I tend to bend over too much during night feedings and go back to bed with my back hurting.  One of these days I might remember to just take the Boppy along upstairs...
