I have shooting pains in my right breast- mostly when I lean over. I don't have any other symptoms- no lumps, no hot spots, no red spots, etc. I have tried hot shower, massage, and nursing frequently.

1. What is this? Mastitis?

2. What else can I do?

I've heard that thrush can cause shooting pains.

And here I thought no one else cared...

Whatever it was it stopped hurting the next day. Thank goodness because I was starting to wonder how to care for 2 babies alone with that pain.

Thanks for your help!!!

I'd keep an eye out for white patches in the twins' mouths. Or a diaper rash that has little red bumps. If you see either of those, you've given the babies thrush.
There are lots of things you can do to treat it.

Oh, I care, all right!

A little pet peeve I have is people starting threads in bfing with cryptic subject headers. It might help if they would put something abt the problem in the header. Like , instead of "help!," you might put, "shooting pain in breast." Maybe you would get more response from women who have BTDT.

Glad the pain went away. It could've been a touch of thrush that just righted itself. You may want to take acidophilus daily anyway, just in case it isn't really gone.

Next time I'll be more specific. I was intending the Help to read: Urgent! Next time I'll say Urgent: pain in breast! or something like that.
