okay so i went to the doctor on friday cause i had a clogged duct, my third one in three months!!! so i went in and the doc automatically said it was mastis, and then i was like okay,,,so he looked and said it was...my breast was swollen a littler red, and lumpy, and i have a pea sized lump on my areola, and he gave me antibiotics to take but i haven't taken them yet, casue the pain and the swelling and lumpyness is gone, but the pea sized bump is still there...so do u think it really was mastis? i never had a fever or chills or anything..

 

So now i'm pretty sure I do have mastis...I still don't have any "flu like" symptoms, but my right breast started to get all lumpy again, and i have a huge milk blister on my nipple and its really sore, I hate that this happened and I didn't eve know how or why...11 months of BF and the last three months i get all these BF issues lol..seems a little backwards!

 No, I don't think it was.  Plugged ducts CAN result in mastitis if they are not resolved quickly, but you say it has gone away.  Here is kellymom's page on plugged ducts and mastitis.  You can see for yourself and decide.  http://www.kellymom.com/bf/concerns/mom/mastitis.html

It doesn't sound like Masitis yet.....it does sound like you have a clogged duct. Keep a close eye on it and follow the steps on kellymom.com  about clogged duct.....keep us updated.

 The pain you are having could be solely from the milk blister. Kellymom has info on both milk blisters and mastitis.
