I get them too, I asked my in home RN about it and she said in all likely hood it is probably that some of the ducts have narrow passages and milk production causes them to fill quickly and swell fast causing shooting pains...
I don't know how much truth is to that but is it possible it might be mastitis or the beginnings of a blocked duct? I noticed that I get that shooting pain a day or so before a blocked duct (I've had blocked duct twice).
