Re: Sporadic but sharp pain between feedings-misdiagnosis?
I know how alarming it is too have a new hitherto unknown pain develop deep in the breast. The times when I experienced a dull heavy ache in the breast it wasn't thrush.
For me it was an early sign to get back into bed and nurse my baby like a newborn. For me that was the tried a true method of fighting off mastitis and to unclog an inflamed duct.
My lo's diaper rashes were often associated with teething.
i would be anxious too if breast pain persisted. But that is why i took the pain as a cue to slow down and take some much needed rest with the baby only an arms length away.
