    Default Shooting pain between feedings

    I'm having really sharp shooting pain in my breasts - mainly the right, after nursing or pumping. I really dont think its thrush because I have no other symptoms and neither does my baby. I also dont think its vasospasm or nipple blanching because its happens after pumping too.

    Anyone else have this? Its really sharp and only in between feedings, not during.

    I have heard that some women have a tingling pain that happens as their milk ducts refill in between nursing sessions. But honestly, thrush and/or vasospasm would be my first bets. If you looked at your nipples after nursing or pumping, would you notice any color changes?
