I had this in the first week of nursing my son, only on the right side. It was extremely sore to nurse him there. The LC (when she FINALLY got to me, 3 days later) had a name for it (which I've since forgotten), and said it was from poor latch. I thought that was odd, since we were having no problems on the left, but she said it's common for one side to be easier than the other. The only thing she said to do was to continue nursing until it went away- which, although uncomfortable, did work. I used Lansinoh, too, in between feedings. It went away within a week, I recall.
Although you've obviously been nursing for a while, and you & the children are pros, maybe they're getting to the age when their interest is waning and they are not latching like they're supposed to?
