The past few days I started feeling sharp shooting pains in both of my breasts. It's mostly around my nipple area. It comes and goes at random. In googling the symptom, Thrush came to the top of the list. I've read how difficult this can be to beat and it's best to diagnosis and treat ASAP so I called my OB. They basically blew me off and said "I doubt it's anything," but I'm still super worried.
My nipples are pink (but I think they always were?), my nipples are sore (but I wouldn't say unusually so), I see a little bit of white in my daughter's mouth (but I think it's just milk residue on her tongue b/c its not always there)...
We have a pediatrician appointment next Friday -- my question is, is that too long to wait to get her checked out? Should I just call my OB and demand an appointment anyways?
I'm so upset because breastfeeding was just starting to go SO well and I was looking forward to continuing indefinitely... and now this... has anyone come down with thrush and still sucessfully breastfed for at least 6 months?
