Re: In some pain, need some ideas....

  • Do you have any other flu like symptoms? Is your breast showing any redness? Does it feel warm? You could possibly have mastitis. I had it while I was pregnant so it's possible to get it when you aren't BFing. Mastitis is extremely painful and it hit me within a matter of hours. It started with my breast being very sore then I felt like death and thought I was coming down with a horrible flu. Call your advice nurse at your OB office and give her your symptoms.

    I'm sorry you're in so much pain. I hope you are able to find some relief.
