is the breast red, hot, swolen at all? or haas lumps in it?
if so it sounds highly likely you have a blockage/ turning into Mastitis. You can get in a hot bath and massage the breast moving the heel of your hand towards the nipple, this should get the milk flowing also keep feeding from it i know that sounds horrid but not feeding will only worsen it. if you start to feel flu like symptoms or have a temp over 38 get to the Dr for ABX.
