Nipple REALLY HURTS!!! HELP!~

I mean REALLY badly! I have a high pain tolerance, so I don't think I'm just being a weeny...what's happening??? Any ideas?

I have been nursing for 8+mos and pumping during the work day for 5+ mos. Nothing in our routine has changed and my nipple looks totally the same as always, but for the past two days the left side of my left nipple feels like it should be bleeding everytime I pump and hurts only slightly less when I nurse. I can feel it sort of stinging all throughout the day. It doesn't feel like a plugged duct because it only hurts on the nipple...I thought maybe his new tooth was rubbing it raw or something as he does have a tongue tie and nurses a little differently, but then why only on one side??
Any ideas or advice?

THANKS!

baby's latch is different on one side vs another b/c your nipples are not identical. if it is in the location where you would expect a tooth to be rubbing, then that sound like a reasonable cause to me.

Stinging/burning pain is associated with trauma or thrush....figure out whether it's the tooth or not, it may be thrush.
