Stabbing pain breast breastfeeding

Common Questions and Answers about Stabbing pain breast breastfeeding


Avatar n tn All symptoms except usual breast pain gone. Baby now nearly 11 mos, and pain is sometimes severe. Stabbing, piercing, pinching, throbbing. Pain with applied pressure above areola and lowerleft quadrant. Pinpoint pain with pressing scattered over entire breast, armpit, ribs. Only tiny lymph nodes felt. Recurring lump and redness same place as mastitic lump, but baby seems to nurse it down. Occasional red patch to the side of that site; resolves. Generalized itching over entire breast.
Avatar n tn I am still nursing my child, and this isn't mastitis. For six months I've had stabbing pains in my left breast. I also feel some pain radiating down my arm now and then. I also feel this heaviness, like sometimes it is painful to breathe. I even went to the ER (first time ever) in April, thinking I was having a heart attack. They said it was anxiety with the pending surgery. I've read about IBC, but I have absolutely no visual changes in my breast, just this pain!
8534099 tn?1410965715 Im on day 12, and its getting better. Just last night, the pain stopped shooting down my leg and stabbing me in the back! Yippie! Good luck!
Avatar f tn Last night was the first time that it didnt send a shooting pain down my legs and stabbing feeling in my upper back! I knew it would get better, im on child #2, but i did forget how painful it is! But dont give up! Its a wonderful thing if you can do it.
202436 tn?1326477933 It went on with the sharp, stabbing pains for an hour or so then it turned into widespread pain across the entire top half of the breast. There is one spot that is noticeably more tender/painful than the rest but its still REALLY painful all over the top half/sides and nipple. It's so painful that it kept me up most of last night. The only thing that helped at all was to either use my hand to put some pressure on it or to lay on my back VERY still.
Avatar f tn now i have these huge bumps around the nipples and those are also normal as well. i know it ***** but you just gotta stick the breast pain out theres not much they can do for you trust me i have begged for meds from my doc lol. and congrats on your baby i wish you a healthy and wonderful pregnancy.
Avatar n tn About 2 and a half months ago I noticed a yellow/clear discharge coming from my right breast. This was immediately followed by stabbing pain. I went to see a breast spec. who couldn't find anything on my ultra sound or mammgrams and said that the only thing left to consider was fibrocystic disease. That would have been fine with me. I even did what he suggested. I changed my diet completely and took the recommended pills he suggested.
Avatar f tn I have the same upper left breast pain. (under arm pit) I also feel it once and a while on the right side as well. I just recently changed jobs and am experiencing a lot of stress. Thought it could be a heart issue, however I'm only 34 and in pretty good shape. (Played high school sports as a kid) After reading the above I've come to realize that the increased stress and anxiety (new job, new baby, etc.) may cause you to worry at little more that you should.
Avatar n tn They felt it was not anthing to worry about. About six months ago, I developed pain in my left breast, the pain moved to my left upper quardrant side. Went to two doctors , well one was a clinic and said that it prob a cyst. Now the pain is so intense, that it hurts under my arm and down my arm and my arm feels stiff and am having joint pain.

Avatar f tn Mastitis is common when women are breastfeeding ,but Inflammatory breast cancer is a very rare type of cancer that would usually present with rapid, unusual increase in breast size, redness, rash, persistent itching of breast or nipple, stabbing pain, feverish breast, swelling of lymph nodes under the arm or above the collarbone, nipple retraction etc...
Avatar n tn Was good for a couple of weeks, then pain started in the upper right side (that stabbing pain you got as a kid when you ran too far too fast). They did another CAT SCAN and showed that part of my incision had heerniated. But, the doctor could not feel when she examined me. So I was put back on Bentyl, Darvocet,Lomotil, Celebrex, Imiperine, Axid and finally Ambien to help me sleep.
Avatar n tn I think some of my symptoms were caused by the antiobiotic which triggered a severe anxiety attack. Anyway, I am still in pain today with pain in my back near the right shoulder blade. Still the pain/pressure under my ribs. I'm wondering if I have a pinched nerve in my upper back which is causing all of this, since this area gives me more pain every day. I also notice much of the pain disappears after I sleep, or lay down and relax. Anyway, I'm going to see my GP in two days.
Avatar n tn i couldn't breathe or move it lasted for afew min's aswell...that was worst pain i've ever felt. Sharp stabbing pain right thru the middle up level with my belly botton. Since then i can get it once or twice a month, other times i dont get the pain at all. and most the time the pain is only just bareable. I usually just sit or stand depending on level of pain and grin and bare it.
Avatar n tn It was occasional problems such as mild sinus pain/pressure and headache with mild eye strain. Each year it has gotten worse. Over the course of the past 5 years I have seen multiple doctors across different specialites: Ears, Nose & Throat, Neurologist, Allergist, and my Intern. I have had MRI's and CT scans. This year has been the worst so far. I have already gotten 2 sinus infections.
Avatar n tn Hi! I am amazed and relieved to have found this forum.... I have had all these symptoms for many years, but the last 3 the numbness/itchy feeling has gotten much worse. Hate to go to drs. because i thought it was just part of aging... I don't think it has to do with weight issues...I am 95 lbs. and 4"11. Numbness is a "patch" maybe silver dollar size on upper inside of groin, numb to touch and severe pain shooting or stabbing or cutting..
Avatar n tn Hi there all, I feel your pain. I have had my pain for going on two(2) years now. It is a stabbing pain between the left scapula and the spine. It also radiates under the armpit, up the neck, down the left arm and around to the chest. I too have had numerous xrays,ultrasounds etc but not an MRI. They cannot find anything wrong! Somedays the pain gets so bad it makes you so depressed and angry. Then when they start telling you perhaps it's all in the head...
Avatar n tn I'm a 42 y.o. female who was diagnosed with plantar fascitis a few months ago. I get a stabbing pain in the bottom of my right heel that radiates to my big toe. After some time, I developed a burning pain in my left Achilles Tendon and a numbness, tingling, and stiffness (both on the left foot). I mentioned this to my podiatrist and he says that we'll have to "look at other things". I know that these symptoms relate to diabetes, but a recent blood test shows no signs of it.
Avatar n tn I have been having symptoms of dizziness, head pain, shakiness and a spaced out kind of foggy feeling like i am watching my life from the outside - all day every day. There are some times for a couple of hours during the day that the symptoms may lift and give me a few moments to live- but not much. I have been to about 30 doctors- including ENT's allergists, neurologists, chiropracters, opthamologists. psychologists, dentists and everything else u can think of.
Avatar f tn As the infection seems to have gone, the pain also will eventually subside. To alleviate the pain,you could take some over the counter pain killers,like Advil or Tylenol... apply warm compresses and gently massage the breast. Also wearing a good supportive bra (Not the tight type) could help. I sincerely hope that all your troubles and worries are now behind you and that you'll be just fine. Best wishes and God Bless...
Avatar n tn I live in the country and went ahead and saw a local general surgeon who offered to do the excision within a week. The downside to him doing it is he's not a breast surgeon, they don't do the breast MRIs here and he'd just remove the initial mass. Any opinions on multiple lumps popping up so fast and being so painful? Should I go with the general surgeon or wait for the premium care facility?
299356 tn?1218119764 My legs and feet would jerk involuntarily and I would just be in tears from the intense stabbing and burning pain every single time I tried to feed my baby. And then when I WASN'T feeding them, my breasts would still be extremely sensitive and have this deep ache. I lasted almost 5 months with pumping with the first and 6 weeks with the second. I hated everything about BF except the closeness and wept many times over having to stop, especially with the first.
Avatar f tn I get a lot of headaches, which include on the top of my head, temples and back of my head. The pain varies, it can feel like burning, sharp stabbing or stinging. My ears ring constantly. I also get dizzy at times. When I wake up in the morning my head feels stuffy like I'm coming down with the flu. Does anybody with r.a suffer with these symptoms? I am a new mum, not enjoying life at the moment, I just want to feel better and enjoy my baby more.
Avatar f tn She's 4 days old but it feels like a knife stabbing me each time she latches on. Anything I can do to relieve the pain????
1551642 tn?1294355534 I couldn't have survived without it. It did nothing for the other kind of pain, the stabbing, shooting pains in the chest. What would have happend if I could have walked around topless for days and days without the honey? I never had the leisure to try that. I have no idea. But the wound just drained continually into the honey, continuing for a significant time even after I went on prednisone. The wound healed, but only because of the drug.
456039 tn?1302663748 It feels like a burning stabbing pain. I do pump when my nipple(s) are too painful and feed the milk to my son. I think my problem is a combination of a shallow latch and injured nipples and vasospasms (due to compression from a intense bite and a shallow latch). It is a viscious cycle that I hope to get resolved soon. I hope to talk with my doctor on Tuesday. I did find an amazing breastfeeding information website called "". Wish I read it sooner.
Avatar f tn Exactly one week after having this done (I was still recovering from the op), I woke in pain with a large lump in my right breast again! Then, as I am sure you all know the process of what followed. I was told again that it was probably an abscess, had various referrals and examination after examination, mammogram, ultra sound scan and finally the biopsys followed by being told to prepare myself and my l family for the worst as she was sure i had breast cancer!
312323 tn?1193300534 L , it was either live with the pain or get back on lupron, I chose to live with the pain, I lived with it for three years till I decided enough was enough I went to see another doctor, I explained me situation to him and he was eager to help, I told him that I cant take this pain anymore and I thought that the pain was from the mirena, he laughed and said no way was my pain coming from the mirena and that there was no way it caused me to get endometriosis, so he gave me an exam to make sure my
