Re: shooting pains in breast and throughout back
Welcome to the forum!
Shooting, tingling pain can be due to several things. Breast infection, by either bacteria or yeast (a.k.a. thrush) is one possibility. Check out this link for more on thrush: http://kellymom.com/bf/concerns/child/thrush-resources/
Another possibility is that you're experiencing letdown pain. The sensation of letdown is often described as tingling or shooting, and is sometimes painful. This is particularly true for moms with overabundant milk supplies. If you're often full or engorged, or you see milk shoot or squirt from the breast if your baby pulls off during nursing, this could describe you.
A final possibility is vasospasm (see http://kellymom.com/bf/concerns/moth...ple-blanching/). Vasospasm is very compatible with the fact that you experience pain when cold.
