    I hear you.

    Mama, do you have cold hands, feet or a cold nose? Do you know if you have Raynaud's?

    I have Raynaud's. Putting on some warm clothes stopped my symptoms A cup of hot tea or soup helped the sudden attacks while I warmed back up.

    Ouch! Is it thrush or Raynaud's phenomenon?

    Katharine i just came back to this post because i am still having the pain. i never realized you posted a second link but i am so glad i read that! that does sound like what i am feeling. i really think my latch is fine and i have gone to the doc several times because i swore i had thrush. my let down really hurts as well though and that is not a symptom is it? maybe i will turn down the ac or wear a sweater 2maro and see if that helps. this totally makes sense now that i am really thinking about it i never have this pain when i am not at home (the only cold place i nurse) thank you so much for this!!!! i really hope this helps
