Hi everyone. I'm new to all of this. I was diagnosed with type1 in April. My doctor put me on kazano which is a metformin based drug with other drugs to ease intestinal discomfort. I had a horrible reaction to it starting within the first week. I had achy legs and muscle sensitivity and burning. Prior to my diagnosis I had no diabetic symptoms. In fact over the last 3 years I lost 65 pounds and I was feeling great. Well back to the reaction. The muscle burning got worse in my legs and it only occurred at rest. If I was moving it went away. It got so bad it felt like muscle spasms were starting. My doctor took me off kazano and I am on invakana. Most of the muscle reaction has subsided but 3 months later I am still uncomfortable as if the medication irritated the myofacial muscle lining. I am now going to an endocrinologist. I've been to physical therapy and medical massage therapy. It seems to be taking forever to go away. Has anyone else experienced this?? HELP!!!
