Mammary constriction syndrome (MCS) is a condition that can cause burning, stabbing, throbbing, and/or “pins and needles” pain in the nipple and/or in the breast during breastfeeding.
It is treated with pectoral muscle massage, which involves rubbing the chest muscles for 45-60 seconds on the affected side.
Other causes of deep breast pain include engorgement with breast milk or mastitis, and can be found through seeking skilled help from an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant.
