Do I sound completely insane?

So I've been nursing dd for 15 days now. It's been far from easy to say the very least. But whenever she latches on the right side I get this overwhelming skin crawling feeling. I can't hardly begin to describe how terrible it is. I mean clenching onto things, toe curling uncomfortability. Not out of pain, just like a complete sensory overload and it drives me insane! Like I hate feeding on that side at all. But the left side doesn't trigger those feelings at all. This can't be normal, right?

That can be normal actually.  There is a name for that, but I can't think of what it is.   Someone else will know.

Definitely sounds like d-mer to me. Its possible it will pass but I'd definitely contact an IBCLC now so you can work on it before it starts to affect supply on that side.

It sounds very fitting. But it says it goes away within a few minutes but when she feeds on that side it doesn't go away until she unlatches :/ but I'll try and find one! My supply on that side is already dipping I can tell.

You are not the only one that has experienced this. You are definitely not insane.

Thats how I was about a week and a half/two weeks into nursing.. it lasted a little while. And i had exactly what you described. My toes would curl, and i would grab anything i could, and my muscles would just clench. I kind of had to force myself to relax myself. It ended up stopping on its own after a while.
