    If you get desperate you can try cutting a clove of garlic into a few pieces and swallowing them like pills. Hope you feel better soon! Mastitis is just awful.

    Just went through something similar on saturday - but I didn't have the fever, just chills and aches. What I think worked for me was letting her feed often on the sore side. I even pumped one night before bed and I massaged the area while pumping/feeding. Also, hot compresses and a hot shower helped me as well. My chills were gone the next day. I read that if your symptoms get worse, it's time to see a doctor.

    Sounds very similar to when I had a plugged duct/mastitis. I didn't call the doc but I did take some tylenol to get the fever down and I used heat and LOTS of massage on the sore spot.

    Hope you are doing better!
