    Default Breast pain

    I've been feeding for 6 months now, this morning I've woken up with really sore breasts. Along the sides towards my armpits. The right one I can't even touch. There's no lumps although last time I had mastitis there was no prominent lump either.
    Any idea? Could it be from my vasospasm?

    Definitely sounds like mastitis. Massive hugs.

    Thanks Should I see the gp or wait?
    I just fed DD on that side and it's still sore but feels slightly better.

    I think they say to point babys chin towards the source of the pain if possible, and massage any lumps while feeding.
    If you can get to the GP it might be a good idea as it can become worse quite quickly.

    I'd probably see a GP as soon as you can get someone to drive you down

    It can get pretty nasty quickly. Best to get on some ABs as soon as possible to ward it off.

    Poor thing! Hope you've got some antibiotics sorted by now. My doctor gave me a repeat script and suggested that I go ahead and fill it so that if I got it again I would have the AB all ready to go. Hugs.
