i have this same problem!!
i went for a breast ultrasound, and they could see A LOT of little stones all in my ducts! i go to penn medicine, which is one of the top health systems in the US, and even they haven't heard of this. the breast surgeon said it is rare, but may be crystallized milk fat.
doing my own research, i started taking sunflower lecithin, vitamin D, vitamin C, and drinking a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar mixed in water, and also increased my water intake, and i haven't had any stones stuck for months! the radiologist said there was a lot in my ducts, but after taking all those supplements, i've only had to remove maybe 2-3 small shards out of my nipples since the ultrasound. i think they shrank and passed through! i'm also seeing milk come through nipple pores, that never had milk come through before.
i started wondering if thrush could have caused the stones? they always say that thrush pain feels like shards of glass coming down the ducts and in the nipple, and that's exactly how mine felt. for me, now i know why, because there was LITERALLY shards of whatever that is, coming through the ducts!
