Mastitis question

Does breast pain and body aches and fever Always require antibiotics or can it go away on it's own?? I woke up at 2:30 this morning with symptoms, motrin helped a bit, but now the fever/chills are back. Will this for sure require me to go in??

 I experienced that with my daughter 4 years ago and it was horrific, but I never went to the doctor and my symptoms releived themselves after 12 hours completely. I did continue to pump through the pains also, so i'm not sure if that helped the symptoms releive sooner or not.  Sorry your having that pain, it is no fun at all.

Thanks ladies, I've upped the nursing, if it's not better tomorrow I'll take antibiotics. There is some hope for me though!
