    Default Mastitis again?

    I had mastitis a while back and I think I might have it again, but I don't have all of the symptoms. A few days ago, I started to feel a tender spot on the other breast. It didn't go away, but didn't get worse either. Last night I woke up with fever and have had it all day. I have no other symptoms like last time, when I had the red streaks and a visible lump in my breast. Could this be mastitis even though I don't have all of the symptoms?

    Is the tender lump in your breast still there? I would call your OB just to be sure because of the fever.

    Sounds like a good possibility that it is mastitis. Ouch!! I had it too. I'd call the doc. Anytime you have a fever thats a pretty good sign of infection.

    I don't think it was mastitis. My fever went away early this morning, about the same time my husband came down with a stomach virus. I had been a bit nauseous myself, but was mostly bothered by the fever I had for 30 hours.
