Nipple Pain ??

I've been having serious nipple pain issues the past couple of days. I've gone through the possible list of causes and ruled all out and now am at a loss.

Not thrush as DD has no symptoms
Not mastitus as I have no fever, chills, etc
Not anything external as nips are not cracked, bleeding or scabbed

Help please!!

baby doesn't always have symptoms with thrush. what does the nipple pain feel like? when I had thrush it felt like razorblades were shredding my nipples, or a white-hot burning. And my nipples were really red and kind of shiny.

i learned just recently that thrush is overwhelmingly the most common cause of nipple pain while bf'ing (after a period of pain-free nursing).

also, your LO may not show any signs. we just went through it and DS never had a single symptom.
