Does anybody know what could be wrong with my breasts?

I have been nursing fine since my daughter was about 2 months old and suddenly now (she's almost 6 months) my nipples are so tender. And my breasts hurt a lot. When she nurses, or I pump, or even if I put any pressure on them. It's been happening for almost a week. Any ideas what it could be?shrugging

are you still able to pump as much as you normally do or is the supply lessening?  its good they arent red or hot to the touch because that is a sign of mastitis which is horrible.

Maybe your supply is just drying up so its harder for you to pump and puts more pressure on them?
