I had been taking Metformin for approximately 3 years when I developed severe pain on the outside of my legs. My A1C is 7%, so my diabetes is not that out of control that I should be having these severe symptoms. It felt like someone was putting cold ice there and I could not get it off. It continued for 4 days when I decided to stop taking the Metformin. The pain immediately went away the next day. I am not encouraging anyone to stop taking their medication! I called my doctor and he put me on another medication. I would like to hear any other stories that are similar to this.
