I think I have mastitis in my left breast. It started out feeling engorged but it didn't go away with nursing. Then I got Achy all over my body, hot/cold sweats, Toe curling pain when I nurse... or when I don't. etc. I looked it up on Kelly mom and the description sounds like exactly what I have.
So Here is my Question. My OB is out of town this week. Thus why instead of a 6 week PP check I have a 7 week PP check. I will call in the morning to see if I can see a different doctor in the office but due to insurance I think I would need a new referral. So do you think my sons Ped could treat me since I am his main source of food? He is the one who treated us both for thrush. Is this something that can be passed to my son?
Is there anything I can do in the meantime to ease the pain? Its 2:45 am my time and I haven't got any sleep from the breast pain and body aches.
One last question... Could this be the reasoning for my sons vomiting yesterday? and still today but today its more chunky spit-up. He never really spit up before this. I have noticed in the past few hours though he is fine after the right breast only vomiting on the left breast.
