So in the last week or so Rory's teething has gotten out of control. She is so fussy and its starting to make nursing a pain! At least I think it's from teething...

She's started just nursing for a few minutes at a time then fussing and refusing...then five minutes later wanting to nurse again...and repeat! It's really wearing on me. Though thank goodness she still nurses pretty well at night when she's too sleepy to care, but wakes up more often.

She also, in the last few days, hates nursing on one side.

So does this sound like its from the teething? Any advice, or tips? Especially on getting her to keep nursing on BOTH sides.

This sounds exactly like what my LO is doing lately. Especially not wanting to nurse on one side. My guess is that he's teething too. He gets really cranky when it's time to nurse during the day but does fine at night.
