Default Bloated/swollen stomach

I recently started glucophage 750 XR about 2.2 mg a day and am also on lantus.I have also been quite liberal with alchoholic beverages , particularly red wine. In the last 2 weeks I I have been feeling very uncomfortable in the stomach area and suddenly notice it is much much more flabbier and large. Could this be diabetes or a drug reaction ?

Welcome to DF, Capricorn. Glad to meet you.

I do not feel like we're qualified to make an assessment of a distended stomach. This is something you should contact your doctor for, especially if it's been going on two weeks already. Please seek out medical advice & let us know how things go.

Thank you for joining us and do come back.

I know what you mean about remote . . . we're pretty rural too.

If you think it isn't "just gas", then what other options are there? If it became an emergency, could you call an ambulance? You did mention being uncomfortable - just not painfully uncomfortable?

I realize that you are in Nepal, but I thought perhaps Kathmanu was a different spelling of Kathmandu, the capital city and a metropolitan area, & perhaps there were some services available, besides internet access.
