So I woke up on Sunday morning with a big lump in my right breast (about the size of a golf ball, or small egg). It felt kind of like a plugged duct, but it was different than the plugged ducts I have had before, and didn't go away after 1-2 nursing sessions, like it normally would. By Sunday night it was still there, and more sore than ever- not much bigger, but definietly not smaller. The part of my aereola on top of the lump was/is red, sore to the touch, and kind of... inflamed? ANyway, last night I started feeling really sick- low grade fever, achey all over, dizzy/tired, sore throat, slightly nauseated. I woke up this morning feeling about the same, but after a night of my son's night wakings (which are inconsistent and numerous, despite my best efforts) the lump is pretty much gone. I have been taking tylenol and I feel better and my boob is less sore, but I don't know if I should still go to the dr? I think it might be the tylenol that is making me feel better, but I don't really know... anyone out there who has had mastitis before have any input or ideas?
