I'm sorry. I've just started breastfeeding, and still getting used to things. I can't imagine how Mastitis feels. I hope you heal soon.
Ugh. The only thing that helped me was nursing more frequently, and changing positions. Have you tried the football hold or side-lying? Those usually helped (for me. . .)
I got it, too...twice. First time, I thought I was sick and contagious...wasn't....Hope you are feeling better!Toni
