I continually get pain in one of my breasts. It feels as though theres something stuck in it, and originally I thought it was a clogged duct, but after seeing an LC she said it didn't feel like it... and by that point it was passed. However, I get sharp shooting pains occasionally in my breasts, and then every couple days one of my breasts (they rotate) will be painful and one of the holes where the BM is coming from is expressing a different color milk than the other holes are. I have had nipple piercings (had them done twice so theres a lot of holes) before and in one of the holes on each breast usually theres more of a yellowish color than the other holes have (the normal white). And it's very tender to press on a certain area, which is expressing the different color milk. What does this sound like? No signs of anything abnormal in baby. He's extremely gassy, but has been that way since birth I believe. This has been going on for a while now with me. I thought it was normal, but after talking to some friends.. they don't have this issue. And I know SOMETHING is going on because when it happens, the other breast feels fine. No pain, nothing. But when it happens, the breast that has the issue really hurts. It hurts in the breast tissue and at the nipple. It's more of a throbbing pain (the entire time, before after during feedings).. and then when I get random sharp shooting pains it very brief.. maybe 30 seconds. When I do get this it's weird because it'll show up in the middle of one day.. and hurt for 15-20 hours, and then is gone by the next day. It rotates with breasts? Other than that, no symptoms or signs of anything else. Don't know if this is normal?
