Pulling Feeling Under Armpit

Anybody else get this when breastfeeding? It's like someone's pulling a little tendon. The football hold and cross cradle both have this happen. Thoughts?

    Yep, it's beast tissue/milk ducts. My right side has this. It will probably ease up the longer you bf.

    It's my right side too. Should I massage something? Obvi not my armpit but is it something I can help ease?

    Heat and light massage worked for me. It will get better after a few days though

    I would recommend massage, use your palm and stroke straight down starting at the armpit. Doing it in the shower helps too.
