Crying murder during breastfeeding

My one month old baby has been more fussy during breastfeeding these few days. She will cry even when my nipple is already in her mouth and she refuses to suckle. Or she will keep pushing away at my breast. Or even arching her back. I tried to calm her down before latching again but after a few sucks, she will cry again. What could be the issue? And what do I do? :( #firsttimemom #help
