BF/Breast Pain

I have this shooting pain every now and then in both my breasts at random times, not even everday. It's not at the same time during the day or always when I nurse or pump. When DD nurses she def empties my breasts, same w/pumping. The pain in not in or near my nipples, its the actual side of my breast, and it doesn't get any worse or better with nursing or pumping. I've researched a bit, doesn't seem to be thrush, mastitis. Any clues on what it could be, or is it just a normal part of BF? Thanks mommas :)

  • hmm I can feel the letdown and from what I desribed to my dr I do have crazy overactive letdown which is a lot of pressure at the nipple then it squirts all over the place lol and its a different feeling from the shooting pain I'm talking about :)
