if you had mastitis...

how the hell long is this pain going to last????? sorry, i am just so tired of hurting. it hurts to walk, it hurts to reach, it hurts to bend over. and it hurts to nurse. the plugs just won't unclog. i woke up at 3 in the morning on thursday with literally half of my breast in knots. i have been taking antibiotics since thursday evening. the fever and chills have gone, and i have been nursing both of my babies on it, hot showers, hot compress, massage when i can stand it. trying to drink lots of water. i can do better in that department though. the clog are better than they were, but . im just frustrated. maybe i should try pumping again.

thanks for listening to my vent.

Re: if you had mastitis...

it usually goes away within of few hours of taking antibiotics. Are you taking those? Ive had it 4x now, twice in each breast. one time i didn't take antibiotics and it took about 3-4 days. Do you have the red streaks on your breasts? It sux, huh? Im sorry!

I just had this last month and it sounded like yours. I have the pain for about 3 days afterward. I think it just depends on the person and how bad it is.

After I'm on antibiotics I'm usually better by the next day. I hope you feel better soon!
