I have a major clogged duct, it kills so bad. I woke up today feeling so sick, extremely achey, sore neck and head ache. I don't have a fever though, and I don't feel sick enough for it to be mastitis. This happened the last time I had a clogged duct, but it wasn't quite this bad. Is it normal to feel so crummy from a clogged duct?

I know how you feel-I have one too! OUCH! I don't have any chills or any other aches, but it hurts! I hope we both get better soon!

Yes, you can even have a low 100.4 fever or below with a clogged duct. Be sure to always offer that breast first with each feeding, and massage the heck out of it. You may also need to apply warm compresses and pump. What usually worked for me was pushing my knuckles down into the plug and massaging really hard while nursing or pumping. I got clogs chronically while nursing my last babe and they are not fun. If you spike a fever above 101, call your dr asap.

Turned into mastitis. I felt crummy all day and my boob felt way more sore than a clogged duct. Then it started turning pink. Just got back from the doctor. Sucks, I feel so crummy.

I'm so sorry, mastitis is MISERABLE. Feel better soon and keep nursing and massaging it.

I'm sorry, mastitis sucks! I hope you are feeling better soon! (Don't forget the probiotics, too!)

I'm sorry to hear you got mastitis too! I had chronic clogged ducts for a couple months and got mastitis once too. It's not fun.

A lot of times I could actually see the white clog at the end of my nipple, so I would put pressure on my breast, and then squeeze out towards the nipple, kindof like popping a zit. Most of the time I could get the clog to shoot out. I'm not sure if it was the best for my nipple, but it was the only thing that helped! Luckily I haven't had a clog for a few months. Knock on wood!
