I'm feeding my 4 month old (every two hours) and my 2 year old (once or twice a day). Gradually over the course of yesterday pain developed in my left breast and is now constant. It is much worse during and immediately after feeding. It's a burning or shooting pain going from my nipple to my back. There's a couple of wee white dots on the nipple. I've had mastitis twice in the last 5 weeks. The last time with lots of red streaks. I didn't go to the doctor as it was too difficult over Christmas and I felt too ill (I know, I know, ridiculous) so I just fed and fed til I felt better.
When I had thrush with ds it felt like a burning sensation deep in my breast which was worse after feeds-it felt as though they were re-filling with boiling water, awful. Quick trip to the gp's sorted it out- I'm not sure if thrush will just get better.
