XP: Vasospasms?

Does anyone have this? If so, how did you know you had it? What were your symptoms? Trying to figure out if the pain I've been having in my nipples is this or just part of my breasts still getting used to nursing...

Re: XP: Vasospasms?

  • I thought I was having them, bur after working with a la leche league leader and an Lc, we determined that it was the beginning of a clogged duct. I am really prone to them because of implants. Try heat and massage and if not, maybe it's vasospasmS?

    Were you having pain in your nipple or your breast? I've tried using heating pad and it doesn't really seem to help ... :(

  • My nips are still sore, but it was a shooting pain through my breast and armpit that corresponded with each suck.

    A hot damp towel worked better than a heating pad for me, or you could try massaging while in the shower.

  • I have vasospasms big time (was confirm by a nurse and lactation consultant). The pain is locate in the breast and the nipple and part of the nipple become white because blood don't circulate well.

    Hot water in shower help a lot for me and doing massage.

    Mostly this for me too. I have Raynaud's confirmed by a LC after I had DS1, and it's the same thing this time.

    OP, do you have nipple blanching? That's the biggest symptom for me, and the fact that any time my nipples hit air I get shooting pains. I do also get the breast pain where they just randomly throb.

    Sorry I was late on this. I was away this weekend and not really around much!
