pain in breast?

I don't know if this should go into the breastfeeding forum, but since I'm not nursing I thought I'd try here

My 18 month old weaned about two months ago, and as my milk was slowly drying up it didn't seem to cause any problems for me (ie engorgement or leaking) Anyways I woke up this morning with a sharp pain in my left breast, a pinching hard hot spot? If I didn't know better I'd say it feels just like a clogged duct does when your BF'ing.
So my question is, that even though I stopped nursing almost 2 months ago, is it possible to get a clogged duct now? I am leaking a colostrum/milk combo that has really become a bit more noticeable in the last week.
If so what can I do? Take some tylenol and do hot/cold compresses? Massage it out like you would with a clogged duct?

This sounds so weird typing it out, but its painful. Obviously not unbearable, but I don't want it to get that way LOL

Anyone else had this happen??

Sounds like a clogged duct, trying massaging it out in the shower ... and yes, you can get clogged even though he weaned 2 months ago because there's still milk in there - especially if he was a hungry boy when he was nursing!

Congrats for going to 18 months!
