I have a milk gland in my arm pit.. That was always my first indication when DS was really young that I was approaching engorgement - my armpit would start hurting. Haha.

I asked my LC about it and she said to keep constant, warm pressure on it while nursing or pumping to help it go down. It did, and after doing that for several weeks I want to say it went away almost entirely (if I'm remembering correctly). It sounds like yours is a bit more determined than mine, though, so I'm not sure if the same method would work - or work as well - for you. It never really bothered me again as long as I didn't go long periods without nursing or pumping. I would ask your LC to see if she has any different advice.
