    Welcome to the forum!

    When you say your nipple has been hard for 2 days, can you describe exactly what you're experiencing? Do you feel like there's a lump under the nipple? Has it been permanently erect, or does it ever relax? Are you seeing any changes in the color of the skin- maybe blanching (turning white)? Are you taking any medications?

    It stays erect. I don't feel any lumps. It does turn white after I pump. I tried to nurse off of it but it hurts way to much. I am on no medications.

    That sounds like vasospasm: http://kellymom.com/bf/concerns/moth...ple-blanching/. Try treating this with heat- a warm water bottle, a hot shower, a heating pad, etc.
