    Default Pain in breast after pumping

    Hi everyone,
    I don't know why this is happening all of a sudden and I wasn't sure where to post this question, but lately after pumping the side of my breast starts hurting. I'm using a new pump and it's really easy and comfy to use, so I wonder if it's caused by my pump or something else....I haven't gotten my period yet but maybe I'm PMS'ing. It's not really an ache though, more of a sharp pain. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    Well, it's kind of hard to tell about the lumps...I thought I had a lump about a week ago, but it seemed to go away. Now it kind of seems like it's coming back. And actually yesterday, after I posted this, I started feeling queasy and kind of hot-flashy. I was reading about Mastitis and thinking it might be that, but my breast isn't red or hard....

    Here are some links that you may not have seen yet.

    This one seems most helpful, it describes several different kinds of pain in the breast and what they might mean:

    This gives further details on mastitis:

    And in case it could be thrush, here is a link about that:

    Does anything in the above sound familiar?
