  1. Hi , This may be an unusual question but since I have been on metformin 500mg 2 daily, started 4 weeks ago, I have suffered from cold feet. Normally never had this before, I now its winter and cold, have 2 pairs of socks on heating on and been wearing my boots all the time. Even bought some thermal socks too .Could be nothing to do with the Metformin maybe just a coincidence, just thought I would ask.:coldfeet::coldfeet:
