Looking for advice here. I woke in the night with what seemed like hot needles being stabbed in my breast. was nearly crying in pain so took paracetemol as I am exclusively breast feeding. I thought it might be mastitis so I went to the GP this morning who on examination said it wasn't. Then I bumped into a friend who said she had the same symptoms and was diagnosed with thrush. I am waiting for GP to telephone to discuss but does anyone know anything about symptoms?
The baby may have no signs. Green poo isn't relevant. Some mums do get ductal thrush with no prior nipple symptoms. Do call the helpline. You may end up being the one who educates your GP rather than vice versa.
Oh no. That sucks. Try some of the other helplines too: LLL, NCT, ABM, BfN. It might be that you didn't get anyone at that time as a lot of the volunteers have school age children and were on the school run.
