    Still no luck with any pain relief. I also made the mistake of switching to maternity bras which made it worse as they werent supportive enough (I have a large bust) so will be going shopping for some new underwire bras soon. If it affects my milk supply then so be it.

    Next time I go to a gp im going to force them to give me a referral to Qld Pain Clinic. Their treatments sound scary but if it helps the pain then ill do it.

    Counting down the weeks until I can go on NSAIDs, cant wait - 20 to go!

    Edit: Ok scratch that ^^^ just read that I can't take NSAIDs when breastfeeding & can only use ibuprofen in low does for short term. Obviously I'm not breastfeeding then.......

    It sounds like you're having a hard time I just did some reading about medications with breastfeeding... Maybe a phone call to a pharmacist or obstetrician would be worthwhile to discuss your concerns with medications, especially if you have a wait for the pain clinic. I hope you got the referral you were wanting,and that you can find some potential solutions to mange your pain soon.

    Thanks! I haven't seen the gp for a referral yet but I did contact the clinic & they said that they are able to see me while I'm pregnant, even if its just for the initital consultations (ie no treatments). So that's good news!

    Next time I see the ob I'll ask about pain relief options while breastfeeding.
