Breast feeding question?!?

whenever I BF on my right side I get this tingling feeling in my back by shoulder blade... What could that be? (I also had gotten the epidural)

  • You have nerves that run from the center of your chest, around the ribs to the back. It's a common nerve to get inflamed with shingles. The heightened stimulation from breastfeeding must be slightly irritating the nerve on that side. Not a bit uncommon, either.
