    Default Breast Pain

    I'm trying to determine if this could be mastitis/clogged duct, or if my muscle is sore from some raking I did over the weekend.

    My breast is really sore right about where the pectoral muscle would be. I am pumping less out of that breast, and its sore on the nipple, as if LO was sucking harder.

    Any ideas?

    I'm not expert. But I would try letting the warm water in the shower run over it and massaging the area before nursing. Sometimes with clogged ducts this will help with the releasing of milk. I would treat it as if it were a clogged duct and if it doesn't help then you can narrow it down to maybe being a sore muscle.
