Finished breastfeeding 7 month old, still engorged and leaking 3+ weeks later

Just on the left boob confused. It is actually getting progressively more engorged and painful and leaky. It is really uncomfortable, especially at night. I'm just feeding DD my frozen EBM and haven't pumped or breastfed in well over 3 weeks. I don't understand! Anything I can do to hurry up the process of de-lactating? I finished BF because of a horrid nursing strike and it was a really difficult decision (but the right one for us) so I really want to move on from this. Thanks for any advice...

Have you tried hand expressing to relieve the pressure but not stimulate milk production too much? Or you can get Lansinoh hot and cold pads to relieve engorgement. You don't think you might have mastitis do you?
