In brief: Vasospasm

This could be a sign of vasospasm, which is when your blood vessels constrict and restrict blood flow to the area.
To help with this keep your whole body warm and breasfeed in a warm place. As soon as a vasospasm occurs, interrupt pumping or feeding and warm your nipples for 10min with a warm cloth. Avoiding caffeine and smoking can help.
