  • Has anyone here ever had ( or know of someone who had) a breast infection that was so deep into the breast tissue that you weren't sure if it *was* an infection or you were having more serious chest pain?

    OMGOSH, I am having difficulty breathing, moving etc. I am getting sharp pains in my "chest" and it's either a really deep left breast infection or I'm in trouble! I keep breaking out into cold sweats, getting light headed (all which can happen w/ mastitis ). I'm not wanting to head to the ER only to find that I did so b/c of a clogged duct or something yk?

    I'm also taking antibiotics right now and wonder if this might be a yeast infection in the breast?

    Anyone with any experience with this?

  • If you are taking antibiotics, you need to speak with an advice nurse.
    You may be having an allergic reaction to the medication and I'd hate for anything bad happen to you.
    Difficulty breathing is nothing to take lightly.
    Please take care and let us know what the Drs say.

  • IA, much much much better to learn its an infection than to be too late and never know what happened. Nobody would ever think any less of you if you went in and it was an infection or mastitis. If it hurts badly go see a dr. that's what they are there for.
    Please keep us posted.
