I Feel So Icky…

Honestly I came on here to vent today. FYI TMI to follow…

Side effects of metformin include:

physical weakness (asthenia)


gas (flatulence)

symptoms of weakness, muscle pain (myalgia)

upper respiratory tract infection

low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)

abdominal pain (GI complaints), lactic acidosis (rare)

low blood levels of vitamin B-12



chest discomfort


bloating/abdominal distention




METFORMIN HATES ME!!! I am so sick. One day I am constipated the next I have diarrhea. Gas is consistent, abdominal pain is nonstop. I am always nauseous, get heartburn easily, have chest discomfort. Not sure if its related but my nose is always stuffy and I am snoring now. My depression is starting to inch its way back into my life and I feel so drained physically and emotionally. It is taking everything in me to not give in and continue focusing on the positives. One thing I keep reminding myself of is that I am trying to take back my health. I go back to the Dr next week I am going to ask if there is an alternative medication I can take. Pray for me I feel like I am dying.

Positivity is a lifestyle!
