Hi Judesmama,

I believe it is mastitis.

I had the exact same symptoms. Are you getting the red streaks in your breast?

It is awful. The blood made my baby girl spit up these horrible clots. I felt terrible. The acid in blood upsets their little tummies and it must taste awful.

Do you see a midwife or another more progressive medical provider? I went to my regular doc who wasted my time with a low grade antibiotic that just prolonged my pain and encourage thrush! I was on an intense antibiotic (Dicloxacillin 500mg) for 10 days.

I hope get to the doctor soon. You will feel worse if you don't. It is painful and it is like having a really bad flu. Good luck!
