13 months and now pain - Help

For the past few days when dd nurses it really hurts.  Like a pins and needles kind of pain- like she is literally sucking needles out of my nipple.  I really don't think it is mastitis - had it 3 times and it isn't like that.  Went to the doc this morning and he did a breast exam, and said it didn't seem like any kind of infection - if it doesn't clear up they will do a mammogram, but wow is it painful - any thoughts, ladies?

Quoting Lovechild82:

That is what I thought, but no white film on baby's mouth and doc said my nipple area should be red, rashy, even flaky if it were - I've never had it - mastitis SEVERAL times, but never thrush so I'm not sure - maybe I need to go back on Monday and see my regular doc.

i have no explanation but I know that it happened to me too...lasted about 2 weeks and then went away...I even had an ultrasound done on my breast bc it hurt so bad...no other symptoms except excruciating pain...

 I had the same thing and then on a chat a couple weeks ago in this group someone mentioned maybe it was a bad latch.  Low and behold since she was breaking in her molars (top and bottom), she just got kinda lazy.  Once I started correcting that, the pain went way.  Check DD latch.  I was getting ready to schedule an appointment with a Breast Specialst to see what they could find.  Good thing I never made that appointment....

We are going throug this again, but I have my own theory as to why I am dealing with it again.  I started cycle about 3 months ago and it was almost exactly to the day last month that we started dealing with this.  I think it might be that I am ovulating so I am more senstive.  Again, just my personal theory. Guess we will see in about 2 weeks.

I get that when I'm ovulating and when my monthly visitor comes to visit.  Do you think that could be a possibility?

I haven't paid much attention to the latch lately.  I will check and work on that - I do think she is working on molars so maybe.  Also - I have had cycle for a while now, but never had pain like this - not that it couldn't start now - maybe that is it.
