    Default Metformin Side Effects

    Hello Group ! Im a T2 diabetic and have been prescribed metformin 500mg x 2 / day. I have been taking the meds for about 6 months. After the first week I started aching all over with flu like pains. Stopped taking it , pain went down , sugars went up so I reduced dosage , modified diet. I have just stuck with fighting the aches and pains , was prescribed Januvia before and it made me hurt worst. But aafter taking metformin for a month or so I started getting a felling in my throat like I was beginning to have problems swallowing. Just barely noticable at first and got worst some time later. Now the swallowing problem has reached a point where its there but not getting any worst. But now a soreness has developes in my throat. Its not like a infected sore throat pain but like a pain in the muscles of my throat. Not a sharp pain like sore throat pain but a dull pain sort of around and behind my adams apple area. . I have an appointment with a ENT pyscician . But I just read where metformin can give a person throat pain. Does anyone think that my throat pain is associated with taking metformin ? Ratler

    Default Metformin , Januvia causing muscle pain

    Group , So far there have been no replies to this post. I have stopped taking Januvia due to it might be causing pancreas cancer. Im back on Metformin 500mg x 2 / day and Im hurting all over like I have the flu. Januvia did not make me hurt this bad and controlled my levels better but I dont want to take it with the cancer findings. Does anyone know if my muscle pain is from Metformin or from having T-2 diabetes ? If I stp taking diabetes meds my aches go away but sugars go up. Has anyone else had muscle pains while taking Metformin ? Help ! Ratler

    I get a sore throat with metformin. I also had arm and shoulder pain, unable to lift my arm over my head or reach behind me. I asked for a lactic acidosis test, but my doctor did not get around to ordering it for ten days. As I quit metformin and the symptoms went away, by that time the test was inconclusive, though still over the standard range at 2 .6. As 50% of patient as with lactic acidosis die, I did not care to wait around while she took her sweet time ordering the test.

    I get a sore throat with metformin. I also could not lift my arms or reach behind me. A test for lactic acidosis ten days after I quit metformin was inconclusive at 2.6, but by then my muscle pain and sore throat were gone. I quit both metformin and the doctor who took her sweet time ordering a test for something that could have killed me.
