Back in March it was discovered that my blood sugar was 300. My a1c was 11. Docs put me on metformin and I experienced the usual side effects but they faded so I figured..no big deal. Cut forward to the very beginning of September, I got sick. Really sick..I legit felt like I was dying. Horrible nausea, vomiting, dry heaves, extreme fatigue, chest felt heavy and major dizziness. While sick I wasn’t taking the metformin and started to feel better so I took it again and bam..sickness started again. My doctor agreed to let me try managing everything with diet and exercise and I gotta say..my blood sugar is pretty well managed. 2 hours after eating and my BS is usually around 105-110. Doc is very pleased but....I’m still experiencing fatigue and dizziness.
Has anyone else experienced this? How long does it take for metformin to leave the body? Please any info is needed. It’s really screwing with me mentally. My anxiety is off the charts because of this.
