  • When did you stop nursing? If you became engorged you could develop mastitis. You should call your doctor right away because it can get pretty severe if you are not nursing anymore and you don't get it treated.

  • Did you stop suddenly? Any breast soreness? Sounds like the onset of mastitis.

  • No soreness, I did wean. I started to wean Oct 1st and was completely done by the 14th. Since then I felt these symptoms (weakness, feverish (no fever) my skin just feels like sunburn)
    Its really weird, and I hate the fact that there is nothing concrete to answer this per a blood test or dr..

  • Does your doc know that you recently stopped nursing? It really sounds like mastitis.
