Sore Lump On Breastbone While Breastfeeding Baby
I'm confused by symptoms Ive had for a week(breastfeeding lack of sleep ?anxiety something serious): radiating chest/breastbone pain&sore glands
Sounds like you're: dealing with a newborn and maybe have some physical sx's that an MD should evaluate. Also sounds like you're getting run down. Any help with baby duties?

Very small, round lump under areola while breastfeeding. Nipple quite sore, and occasional deep, aching feeling.
I have a lump in right arm pit and havea bit of trouble breastfeeding on that side, plugged duct, and soreness. Could the lump be related?
Yes : A plugged duct can be the trigger for mastitis which is an infectious process. It can start slow but can progress to fever and general symptoms almost like the flu, in addition to breast soreness and redness. The armpit is full of lymph nodes which will swell if there is an infection. Mastitis requires antibiotic treatment. An exam can determine if that is developing and if the two are related. ...Read more

Vague question: We generally avoid salycelates and prefer Acetaminophen as a medicine for comfort if throat lozenges or menthol gum is not adequate. Antihistamine and decongestant containing cough meds can reduce your milk volume, so simple mucolytics are preferred. Baby was exposed to the germ before you became symptomatic, so s/he will either get it or not based on their tolerance to the germ. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
