MASTITIS

I woke up this morning with a sore left boob, I'm sure the whole world is interested to hear! :-( A blocked milk duct, I assumed but as the morning has worn on I have gone from feeling uncomfortable to burning up, shaking, aching all over, feeling total exhaustion like I could sleep for a month. I have on 2 jumpers and a jacket though my car tells me the outside temperature is 17 degrees. I guess for just the second time in my life I have mastitis. Anyone who knows me, knows I am a bit of a militant breastfeeder by UK standards but this is the one side effect that has me crying like a little child begging for relief. I can do childbirth with no drugs but I just can't cope with mastitis :-( Anyone got a sedative that I can use to knock myself out for the next 2 or 3 days till I recover? :-(

You poor thing! Please spend the whole week-end in bed! I hope you'll get well soon!

Stakkels dig. Sikke noget rod at få yverbetændelse. Men god bedring. Håber du snart holder op med at have ondt.

Just to explain one word from Seb's comment: Mastitis has two translations into Danish: yverbetændelse (lit. udder inflammation) in cows, and brystbetændelse in humans. ;-)

I really meant what I said about spending the whole week-end in bed! Please cancel all visitors, or let them roam freely while you sleep! Mastitis is no laughing matter!
