Sounds painful!! Do you have a fever? My first thought is mastitis. It's a condition that can occur whenever breastfeeding is reduced. As the breasts become more and more engorged, there's a greater chance for a blocked milk duct(s). If it doesn't naturally resolve, it can turn into mastitis, an infection/inflammation of the breasts. The clear fluid may be pus and the hard/lumpy texture tells me there's probably several blocked ducts. If you have a fever or other signs of illness, it's probably mastitis. You really need to see a doctor to have your symptoms evaluated; you may need antibiotics.
