It feels really tender in one spot on my left breast, but it's almost in between my breasts. Does that make any sense? Kind of where the underwire beings on the inside. Are there ducts there? I've battled maststis 2x this year, I hope it's not another round coming on. I can't feel a lump, and it doesn't hurt when I nurse, but I can't imagine what else it could be. The breast that I'm complaining about is the side dd has been using less.

Its very possible - try massaging outwards befoire and during BFing... those ducts do extend quite far. and a plugged duct will make your LO feed less on that side. If you start treating it as such now, you may be able to ward off the mastitis. Are you wearing underwire bras? If so, I would stop because those are linked to pluggedd ducts and switch to something else - I just use Fruit of the loom sports bras!
