Yes. I had the worst bout of mastitis I've ever experienced after ds thwacked me with his head as a toddler. The milk was coming out bright pink! It is awful and I found it incredibly painful for 2-3 days. The milk felt like it was burning as it was drawn through the inflamed area.

Some people seem to be more susceptible to blocked ducts and mastitis than others. I've also had repeated blocked ducts from using a front carrying sling.

Could the increased feeding have upped your supply a bit and hence the fullness you're feeling?

I had it several times with both my dc. I found the homeopathic remedy Belladonna worked really well for me.
