For the last few days, about 30 minutes after nursing and even after pumping, my left breast has sharp, shooting pains. It's worse if I touch or rub them. A few weeks ago, I had a milk blister but that seems to have cleared up. I don't feel any blocked ducts, the nipple is sensitive, but I don't notice anything strange looking about it. I have had thrush before (with my first baby) and I don't think that's what this is. But, man, it's killing me! It's a nerve pain that feels like daggers or needles going through my nipple deep into the breast tissue. Any thoughts on what it is and more importantly, how I can make it go away? Thanks mamas!
