Back again, sadly. So going back off of my thread recently posted titled "baby eating too much?"... I now have other symptoms (regarding the thrush convo) and wanted to get yall's opinion before I can call my doctor on Monday.
So I know I said before I had the sharp pains. Now, they are way more often, and more painful. I get the deep tissue pain, and now I have also noticed my nipples are RED. These in combo make me think thrush, WBU? I've also never had a vaginal yeast infection so I don't know for sure but (TMI I'm sorry) I am more "itchy" down there, but not significantly. Other that that no issues "down there", its more or less in the breasts.
Thursday, over night into Friday my son actually slept for the first time ever for 6.5 hours straight. I woke up with EXTREMELY engorged breasts. I started to pump and knew I felt some knots. I had a feeling I'd start to get screwed with mastitis again. I woke up early Friday morning around 5am with a 100.8 temp, chills, etc. I wanted to see if I could get rid of it alone again, and wanted to wait until 24 hours before calling docs for medicine as I hate taking crap unless I absolutely have too. I ended up feeling better (after HOURS and HOURS of pumping, nursing, resting in bed with baby, and fluids), but wanted to see the doctor just incase so I went into see him at 5pm. I went in and he said "it didn't look that bad" and by that point, I started to feel a little better. He gave me a prescription for it just incase it...
