At 3:30 AM last night, I woke up with terrible pain in my R breast. I immediately did warm compression and pumped hoping it will take care of it. However, the pain was getting worse. I was still shivering after 2 blankets and a fleece sweater and my whole body was aching. This morning my temp was 101.5F and I've been taking tyrenols. I don't have redness or heat on my breast. Would it be still Mastitis?
Last month, I had exactly same symptoms. Dr. said it didn't look like Mastitis, and if it was, it would be the beginning of it. She prescribed antibiotic just it case and told I don't need to take it if I feel better which I did.
My temp went down to normal now but I'm still feeling exhausted with headache and body aches. I filled Rx just in case. Should I take antibiotic? or Should I not take it if I feel better?
After last night and today, I'm reconsidering my BF plan. I wanted to continue at least a year (DD's 20wks), but I definately don't want to get Mastitis again.
