I love them for the fact of breast feeding and I'm able go give my son all the good nutrients but in the beginning of December I was hospitalized for 4 days with mastitis in my left breast. The thing that kept me in there was they couldn't get my blood pressure to rise and pulse to stop jumping up in the 130s when I stand. Well I left with the antibiotic and was doing good. I ended that on the 14th and now I'm having the same freaking symptoms with my right breast. I have been pumping and feeding bottles because when I was hospitalized DS wouldn't go back to the breast.
I really don't want to go back because I hate hospitals and drs. I have what they call 'white coat syndrome'. And on top of that I'm not sure when my Medicaid ends. I know id rather take the hospital bill than suffer and not get the meds I just am really stubborn. Right now I'm waiting on my MIL who is a nurse to tell me if I should go or just keep watching it for a bit.

Are you engorged at all ?
If so pump and pump but if you arent and it is inflammation, I would do hot compresses and see if it gets better. If not probably infected and you need antibiotics.
Feel better, I know how you feel about doctor cause I am the same way!
I'm not engorged. I did get engorged the other day because wetook an unplanned roadtrip so I didn't have my pump. But every since then I have been fine. I have tried hot compresses as well. Right now we r worries about my blood pressure because it is low. Going to get something to eat and drink some gatorade and hopefully it will stabilize otherwise I'm headed back to the emergency room.
