I have pain the few days before a period and also around ovulation time. It hurts enough that water hitting them in the shower hurts and I grit my teeth when dd latches on and starts a feeding.
It could also be pregnancy.
And I've had thrush once and I remember nipples got really red and my entire breasts hurt. With pregnancy, it was just nipples that hurt when nursing.
I hope it gets better soon. (And secretly hope your preg cuz surprise ones are awesome, hehe).
