Mastitis AKA Death Warmed Up!

So I have mastitis.
One minute I was fine, the next minute I was really cold and shivering uncontrollably. I can’t believe how quickly it came on.

I went between feeling freezing cold and shivering and feeling boiling hot and sweating. My neck hurt, my head felt like it was being crushed and I was dizzy.

I’ve been on antibiotics for a day and a half now and am feeling much better. My head still hurts and I’m still dizzy. I’m still feverish and now my nose and ears feel congested too.

Having mastitis is the worst I have EVER felt!

Now I’m on the mend I’m really worried about weaning. I haven’t started weaning yet but mastitis can occur in weaning as the baby isn’t feeding as often. I really don’t want a repeat of this!
