The only time I've had a stinging sensation is when my milk would let down. That is what it feels like...

I feel stinging and tingling all the time, more tingling in the nipple though.

This sounds dumb but letdown is during when you're milk is coming out? I am just starting to get this sensation, not sure if it is my boobs filling back up? Happens a couple hours after a feed.

My understanding is that it's when it comes forward so that it is ready to stream out faster. If you are leaking you probably let down, but you can also let down without leaking. But it's very obvious when you are pumping (tons more milk suddenly) or BFing (slower, rhythmic sucking with more swallowing).

Doesn't matter how your supply is the sensation is when the milk is released from the ducts all at once. I feel mine very strongly when I'm not drinking enough water. If I'm hydrated I barely notice it
