I wore a bra today to leave the house and it seems to have resulted in some plugged ducts. Just now while nursing on my left breast, my right armpit hurt during letdown. This is bad, right?

Lots of people have milk ducts in the armpit area. I would closely investigate the whole breast for plugged ducts and work on them. I have had luck when I attack early getting them out without too much trauma.

good luck!

that happened to me last night. i thought it was just a quirky BF thing. i've been wearing nursing bras (no wire) for about a week now. it hasn't hurt since even during subsequent letdowns. when i BF older DD i got a plugged duct once in my armpit but it hurt all the time, not just during letdown. also, the plugged duct didn't start by just hurting during letdown.
don't know if it helps but it doesn't necessarily mean something bad is happening.
