    Default shooting pain in breast

    Since about midday today I have had this shooting pain in one of my breasts which is quite uncomfortable. It is almost pulse like and comes and goes. It is in exactly the same spot. No nipple pain.
    Any ideas what it could be? Could it be the beginning of thrush?

    hmm could be the beginning of mastitis ... be careful - it can come on fast and be REALLY nasty (I had a bad dose with my second son .. and would never wish it on anyone) .. watch for red spots on your breast, and make sure that when you are feeding, that you aren't pressing on any part of the breast (blocking flow) and that she feeds well from that side ..

    I would probably offer her that side first for the next feed to see if she can help sort it out???

    (the only other thing that springs to mind is whether your bra is a good fit?? I get stabbing pains in my breast if I wear a dodgy bra - I neeeeed support)

    good luck - I hope its something simple

    I got that with my first child and didn't know what it was. Turned out to be thrush...

    Definitely get it checked out. I had that a few months ago and it was thrush. Poor dd had it in her mouth I didn't realize the pain was related until the dr told me! I have also had mastitis a few times and it's a different feeling to that stabby thrush pain! Get it checked out for peace of mind

    I was also going to say thrush..
    Easy to treat,so maybe if you cant get in to see your GP,head down to the chemist and talk to them.
