Definitely sounds like it. I'd get to the GP asap. Big hugs mastitis is the pits!

Take some Panadol and nuerofen for now (I was told this by a midwife) and rest if you can. I know it hurts to feed from it but you need to keep draining it, try different positions to get all the ducts, something warm on the blocked ducts and massaging them towards your nipple if you can too. I hope your feeling better soon!

You could have a warm shower and hand express while you are in there to help drain it.
