Sore nipple after stopping BFing - normal?

I BF my DS for nearly 13 months, but last Tuesday evening we had our last night time feed and he now has a cup of milk at bedtime.

Because I've only been giving one feed in the evening for a few weeks now, I haven't experienced much in the way of engorgement, but my left nipple is giving me a bit of gip. It's very tender and it hurts if I knock it or press it. There is a little bit of milk there if I squeeze it, but it's not flowing out in rivers or anything like that. Occasionally, I get a couple of sharp but mild pains there without doing anything to it.

Is this sort of thing normal when you stop BFing? I must admit my body has surprised me by how much 'feels' different since stopping!
