Hi, new to this forum. Seeking advice please. Been diabetic for a couple of years (type 2) and the doctor keep a regular check on things. I mentioned recently about some apparent side effects and they suggested its likely but couldnt drill down and be more specific. If its ok I would like to overview here what I am on regarding medication~:- - Metformin - Aspirin - Atenolol - Gliclazide - Fenofibrate - Perindopril - Simvastatin Here's what I am experiencing regularly:- - Tenderness on the base of feet (feels as if I have been running my feet over abrasive paper) - Similar Tenderness in pals of hands - Finger end a little cold - Tender lips; also feel dry/cold - Generally feeling as if I am coming down with a mild 'flu-like' symptoms - A bit hazy in the eyes (not dissimilar to when sugars are high; albeit they arent at moment) I am thinking that perhaps (as doctor implies) one of these medications (maybe a combination) has these side effects. I would trial a couple of days dropping off some (of course keeping a check on blood sugar) to see if any noticed improvement. In a way seems when sugars are under control this happens more!. Looking forrward to hearing from new friends here. Thanks Seanie Forgot to add that some of the medication also taken to help control high blood pressure.
