Painful BF, but latch seems ok...

My DS is 2 weeks old and I'm experiencing a severe stinging in my left nipple when nursing. This doesn't happen when nursing from the right and the latch looks identical to me... Sometimes it hurts from the start but often it only starts after my milk lets down. HV advised to use rugby hold for 48 hours to see if makes a difference and said it could be nerve damage which can take weeks to heal. Any ideas?

On a side note, DS had a tongue tie but it was snipped a week ago and I could immediately feel the difference in the latch pre and post snip...

Ok... it might be the latch as I am getting a white line across my nipple.
