weird symptom - anyone else?

Generally, my breasts have been sore. I get how that makes sense. But sometimes they go through weird periods of intense tingly pain, like my nipples are on fire or are running through with electric current.

I'm at my desk and work, and it's really intense right now. It's freaking me out a little bit. I feel like yelling at my boobs "What are you doing in there?!"

Am I the only one?

  • Had that.
    I give up trying to get a ticker.  I have a DD that is 2.5 years old and is awesome.  Maybe I'll add a quote to distinguish myself.  Hmmm.  How about...

  • I just had that today.  And FWIW, if you breastfeed, thats EXACTLY what it feels like when your milk lets down. 

    ETA: I actually checked my bra for leakage today when I felt it...there wasn't any (in case you were

  • fwhew.

    I don't know why none of the baby books I read have described this accurately. They all say "breast tenderness." But this is slightly more than tenderness!

     Good to know I'm not alone. Also, I do plan to breastfeed, so it's good to know what I have to expect in the future. Thanks!

  • Yes, the way they were resting in my bra at my desk today was so irritating, I wanted to rip off my bra so bad.

  • Mine is more annoying than's like someone is poking 3 or 4 needles at a time through pores in my nipple....I read on it and it has something to do with the glands connecting to the pores so we can deliver the milk. ( I just love when my husband grabs them really hard right then- buttmunch)

    I have to say it's nothing like the cramping or m/s or exhaustion!!!
