Hi Guys, Was diagnosed on the 6th Jan 2014 and was placed on Metformin 2x500mg a day. since then most days have been ok but i have noticed that the past few days i've been getting really bad stomach cramps/wind. is this quite normal? my doc said to expect a little but i thought that would be the odd inconveinent fart or two lol. i take it with my morning meal and evening meal. funnily enough it only then seems to ease if i eat something so i do that. get a little bit panicy when it comes along for instance last night i was woken up out of my sleep with it. i had my evening meal and took my tablet then went to sleep as i work early in the morning. At midnight i was awoken with such awful pain. is this just a breaking in phase of the drug? got the docs again on Thursday to ask what the hell is going on but any input here would be greatly appreciated! Marty C PS gonna stop fizzy diet drinks just to see if that is what is amplifying the "cyclone" in my abdomin.
