Help! Milk production suddenly stopped!

My son is 3 months old. Unfortunately, when I went back to work, I've had to supplement with formula. I'd nurse him all evening, throughout the night, and all weekend. He was getting more Breastmilk than formula and it worked for us just fine.
I was in a wedding out of town this past weekend and had to pump. All seemed fine. I even nursed all day Sunday.
But suddenly, as of Monday, it's as if my milk flow has almost stopped completely! I'm practically empty and have had to give him formula for each feeding since then.
It breaks my heart that I can't nourish him. We love nursing and this just can't be over!
Any ideas? I've been drinking the Mothers Milk tea for a few days, but of course it hasn't helped. 😔😞

You could also be dehydrated by all the stress and travel and not have drank enough water.
