This does sound like me. I am ticked, though because I literally can't get anyone to help. When I asked my PCP, he blew me off. This is the same doctor who was renewing my blood pressure prescription post-pregnancy and when I told him I was BF, he threw the pen. Jerk. My OB/Gyn looked at my breasts, told me that they looked fine and that for the burning sensation, I should just use ice packs to keep them comfortable. The crappy Ped didn't have a LC in their office at all and now the new ped doesn't have one. I'm truly at a loss. Other than going to an urgent care center . . . .
Today was a weird experience, but something that has happened around here before. Got up this morning, was NOT engorged. Started pumping, had no problems. Milk was coming out just fine. Then all of a sudden, I guess I had letdown or something. Breasts got rock hard and milk wouldn't come out. I was doing my massages and compressions, felt no abnormalities whatsoever. I was on and off the pump after that because I didn't want to rub myself raw from the pumping and massaging, plus DD needed me. I was on and off the pump for an hour and managed to get 13.5 oz.
I can't imagine my diet needing to be changed any further. I'm already on an allergy-friendly diet, which also cuts out most sugars, carbs, etc. I do have probiotics, but every time I've attempted them (they are allergy friendly), I wind up very ill from them.
What I'm doing today is this:
*Vinegar Rinse and GSE like crazy. I already feel like I'm a pickle.
*Double sterilizing all pump parts.
*Washing anything and everything that has come into contact with my breasts with the hottest water we have and vinegar
*I'll go out later and get clomitrazole as soon as the boys wake up and are settled
