5 week old child, pain after being breastfed. Causes for condition?

Our 5 week old baby has waves of pain after breastmilk feedings. You can literally see it come over her. The waves usually last 20 seconds t a minute, and repeat every inute or 2. It can last anywhere from 30 minutes to 3 hrs. Initially this was just in the day time, but it has moved to night as well. Have paralysis by analysis from over reading. Any ideas?

3.     Keep baby warm.
4.     Exclusively breast feeding,
5. You should get her evaluated once for her complaint to get her examined physically by a
