I have PMR and been on Prednisolone for almost 5 years, currently reducing to 2mg.
I was diagnosed with Tyoe 2 Diabetes and started in Metformin about 3 months ago.
I have been feeling unwell lately, as well as dizzy and unsteady. Now I have abdominal pain, bloating, wind and a nasty episode of diarrhoea! Until the abdominal symptoms I thought it was lack of steroids as I was reducing from 2.5 to 2mg. Now Im suspecting Metformin side effects. I've been on it for 3 months and on reflection I've had increasing abdominal problems in that time. On the list of possible side effects I have all bar 1 or 2. Question is, do you think it'd be ok to stop it for a few days to see if I feel better? My blood sugar test result was 49, so not that high.
