I have all of the symptoms for mastitis except the high fever (I had a low fever (99.3) that was relieved with tylenol) & no red spot on the breast (I googled images). It could also be a plugged duct but I also have flu-like symptoms. My achyness/fatigue stopped after I ate some food and took some tylenol--for the most part. I can also attribute feeling achey/weak & tired to realizing I have not been eating enough.
From what I've read, the Dr. will want to see me if I might have mastitis. Since it's Saturday, I am sure that I will have to wait until Monday--so I was going to wait and see how I feel tomorrow. Could I really hurt myself by waiting to call til Monday? I do not want to go to the ER on halloween & w/ the flu going around--but I would hate to make matters worse. (and since I dont have a high fever & redness on the breast--I would hate for it to just be engorgement)
Anyone that has had mastitis or a plugged duct have any insight? Thanks!
