For the past 2 days I am experiencing sharp shooting pains in my left breast after breastfeeding. The pain is only for a couple of seconds and sometimes will happen if I hold my baby and he's pressing against my nipple and only happens during the day. Neither of us have signs of thrush nor do I have symptoms of mastitis or a plugged duct. My son will be a year next week and he's still feeding anywhere from 4 to 5 times a day. He sleeps all night and I quit night pumping months ago so really sure it's not a plugged duct. Has anyone experienced this or can give me any reason this may be happening before I call my doctor? Any help or advice will be appreciated!!
Thank you in advance!
