Metformin has a common side effect of flatulance (or gas) but the difficulty swallowing I have not seen listed as a side effect. There are other things that can cause trouble swallowing. I would discuss the problem with your heathcare provider next time you see him/her.

Dzoobaby is right, I was on it long enough to atest to the fact that it did cause stomach symptoms and one of those had to do with lots of gas/flatulence
