    I have not checked my sugar levels in past few months. Today feel nervous and shaking hands. Ate 3 chocolates with plain water. Then heavy dinner. Not really very heavy but biryani rice. After 2 hours my bg levels at 11.6
    I was shocked. Took metformin ER. Went out for 45 minutes walk and little exercise. Still 10.6 after 4 hours. I am very worried.

    Why are you shocked if you eat chocolate and rice ? You need to cut things like that out. Your levels will start to drop soon.

    Your profile says you're diet controlled only.
    Do you not normally take Metformin?
    They need to be taken regularly, not as a one off, if you need to take them now.
