All symptoms except usual breast pain gone. Baby now nearly 11 mos, and pain is sometimes severe. Stabbing, piercing, pinching, throbbing. Pain with applied pressure above areola and lowerleft quadrant. Pinpoint pain with pressing scattered over entire breast, armpit, ribs. Only tiny lymph nodes felt. Recurring lump and redness same place as mastitic lump, but baby seems to nurse it down. Occasional red patch to the side of that site; resolves. Generalized itching over entire breast. Brief relief after nursing. (decreased pressure?) Letdown reflex more tingly and painful in affected breast. Pain worsening; used to come and go, but has been continuous for past 6 wks.
