Breast pain, armpits pain, excruciating pain. Breast feeding. Why?

Hi i had my son 11 months ago. I had alot of trouble breast feeding due to pain. My breasts still ache and my armpits too not excruciating pain and seems to be worse in the evening which is helped by a hot bath sometimes they are fine and as i say sometimes aching. I can still get a nipple erection and i check regularly for lumps and havnt found anything. I must also tell you that my bras are not the best fitted . Any help would be greatly appreciated many thanks

Dear Ma'am,

Sorry to hear about your problem. This is a common problem after lactation. It is good that you are regularly checking your breasts for lumps.
To relieve this pain, you should wear a well supported bra (sports bra's are helpful). In addition to that avoid caffeine (coffee/ tea). If the pain still persists you can try Vit E capsules. With these measures the pain would go down within a month or so.

Hope you get well soon.
