Pain under left breast

Pain under left breast

Postby Scoggle » Thu Apr 20, 2017 2:45 pm

My little one is 7 weeks old now and I've been exclusively breastfeeding. For the past month or so I've had this pain that comes and goes underneath my left breast. It is a dull ache, but also gets a sharp pain when I lay down on that side at night. It almost feels like it's in my ribs or the muscle, rather than the breast tissue. However, the pain gets a little worse from the weight of my breast when it's full. Breastfeeding is going fine, and is not painful at all. Which makes me think it's not mastitis or thrush or a clogged duct. Does anyone have any other ideas if this could be related to breastfeeding? I don't see my midwife for another week 😕

I had this when my son was younger. I never found out what it was for sure but I had a few people mention vasospasm to me. Maybe look into that...
