Default Tingling feet

My husband is taking metforman 2000mg at night. Since starting his treatment, he is experiencing irritating sensations in his feet at night. This is causing disturbed sleep and resultant tiredness. Could this be a side affect of the meds? He does not have neuropathy.

The only questions I can think of are ... how are his glucose levels going? Are they steady, or are there sharp ups and downs?

Someone may come along who knows more about Metformin and side effects, but I do know that glucose levels can affect sensation.

There are too many variables here. Even though you say there is no neuropathy, my bet would be on this. How long has he had diabetes? What has his A1c's been? What are his blood glucose readings? Could he have had diabetes long before his diagnosis?

I seriously doubt this is a side effect of metformin.

If the problem continues, please have your husband talk with his doctor to see if this can be resolved.

His levels are between 9 and 7, which is still not ideal but have come down a lot from 20.1.

Sometimes having your average glucose come down too fast can do this. Usually though happens to insulin users. But you can try googling insular neuritis to see if symptoms are the same
