if you are taking regular metformin, you might consider trying the extended release. i couldn't take the regular because of similar symptoms, but i am fine on extended release.

I would talk to your doctor about it. It could be the Metformin or something else. Gallbladder attacks can come on suddenly and bring along the same kind of symptoms. Those times it does it...did you have a meal that was particularly high in fat or spicy before those attacks? If so, that might be the culprit. I had a similar situation happen and it ended up being my gallbladder. But of course only your doctor will know for sure. Good luck!

Definitely talk to your doctor! And keep him or her in the loop on any major dietary changes you make.

Yeah I'd get the gas and upset stomach never too painful but definitely embarassing. After 3 months that got under control and I rarely have those issues anymore. This is just gas pains in my abdomin every now and then that hurt badly. It may just be a me thing but was hoping others may be familiar with it too.

It might be from the metformin, you might ask your doctor about it. At first when I started taking it, it made me very gassy and have upset stomach. It took about 2 months for that to go away for me.

So sometimes when I'm either going to bed or already asleep I'll wake up with sever pain in my abdomen and it even shoots through my back in between my shoulder blades. Sometimes pepto helps (for a short while like 15 mins) and sometimes gas pills will help releave it so I don't want to cry but I still can't sleep. A few times when I actually get sick I feel better quicker but that route sucks too.

I've been trying to figure out what causes it because I never experienced this until I was diagnosed and on metformin. No pop, watching what I eat and nothing seems to stand out for the cause. It always feels like gas pain and I'll either get it two or three days in a row at night and then be fine or get it once randomly and be ok for a month or two. I've eaten the exact same things two days in a row before and one day I was fine the next day with the same food I experenced this. Didn't know if it's just me or if anyone else has had this since being on meds for PCOS.

No More Excuses!
