Am I getting mastitis

I have stopped "cold turkey" nursing my 9 month old! I'm getting Married in August and I would like to know my size to fit into my dress! It's been a week since stopping and my breasts are still engorged and sore! I have huge lumps in both breasts just above my nipples! I have tried warm compresses, I take sage and I have also done cold cabbage leaves! I pumped just to release a couple times and it helps with the lumps but only for about 10 mins and there back again! I have no fever or flu like symptoms! So I'm wondering if I should get meds for mastitis or am I over reacting? How long should I be in pain like this? What should I do? Thank you
