One area of my breast is tender and sore to the touch..its definitely not severe and it doesn't hurt to nurse, and I don't feel any lumps. There is no redness so I don't think it is mastitis (plus I think mastitis would hurt a lot more than this) I also have a low grade (100.9*) fever <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> (fever is bothering my more than the soreness) I was a little engorged on that side for a good part of yesterday. One weirdness was, last night we went to see a movie and I was pretty engorged in the car on the way there (it was a little sore, but attributed that to engorgement) so I nursed her as soon as we got our seats. It was SO soft and "deflated" within just a couple minutes! When its that full it usually takes like 2 nursing sessions to soften it even close to that much. It refilled right back up (not as full as before) before the movie was even over. Thats a little..weird.

Sounds like what I had a couple months ago. There probably is a lump there, but you just can't feel it--eventually when I lay on my back and felt around deep inside the breast, against the chest wall, I found a lump. Mine was mastitis too and the breast didn't hurt all that much--the fever was the worst part (though mine was up to 103). Rest rest rest, nurse a ton, drink water, and try to clear the lump, if you find it--hot compresses, or run the shower on it, and then massage it. Once I cleared the lump, I felt much better. Maybe you were "empty" so quickly because there's a duct that's not clearing all the way? Just a thought: feel better soon.
