janelambe; In the side effects there are several problems with muscle and joint pain,lower back or side pain
muscle pain or cramping does not say where the pains are but without a dought you should let your doctor know about this sure sounds like it is side effects from the medication. Good luck
Thanks for the reply. My last doctors visit, she decided to up dose the metformin and since then i wake up with sore joints especially in my elbows (old injuries) and my hip bone. Not much information when I looked the metformin medication.
