      Hi, I have had diabetics foe 6 years I have always had it diet controlled. But it has now gone up and I have been taking metformin For 6 weeks. Before I took them I had loads of energy but now I am so tired that I cannot even speak and move without being so tired. Also I am suffering with really bad cramps. I hope someone can help or let me know if this is normal. I cannot get into seeing the doctor till 20th May.
