Welcome Sweety. I have problems in the past with remembering if In took my pills. This is what I do. I set all my pill bottles on the center of the counter where I prepare my breakfast. I see them before I put my plate on the counter. I take my pills at that time, before breakfast. I never fail to take my pills now.

Sorry Terri I forgot to also ask where are you from. I had the rheumatoid test i'm right at the limit for normal. My stomach started swelling long before I took the metphormin so I know thats not it. Oh well I'll just keep trying things. I know I feel better from before the medication so things are looking up.

Hey Sweety:

I live in the Capital where the Big Bad Boys(Gov.) are. That's what we call them here.


"Right at the limit for normal"? Mmmm.

Okay, how's your gallbladder? That can cause bloating also. My Sister had her's out a couple years ago. My close Friend also had her's out about 6 months ago. They both had bloating and eventual pain also.

I used to get stomach bloating and nausea if my sugars got higher up. I changed to Humalog many years ago and if my sugars went high occasionally, I'd just feel real tired, warmer, my brain felt foggy and sometimes a headache and sometimes blurry vision.

Well, Good to hear that things are looking up for you. Feel Better.

Oh in the east huh? I hear its real hot out there right now. Yeah I had my gallbladder out years ago, 10 years after my stomach started to swell. Its not bloating because its real firm you know? And it doesn't change size. Except slowly got bigger and bigger. I've asked the doctor for a c-scan but you know you can't tell doctors what to do. I'm convinced its bezoars at this point. I have neuropathy every everwhere. There is tingling in my temples and in my back ect. So I think it has caused bezoars to form. I'm going to try the digestive enzymes see if that helps. I understand its good for alot of other things to and its completely non-toxic so it can't harm me. I'll post my results if I have any.

Hi There:

Yes, I am in the South Eastern part of Ontario. It was really Nice and warm here but today it has cooled down quite a bit. We've had off and on rain also.

Okay, I wouldn't have thought of a bezoar. A cyst or benign tumor maybe. If it is causing you continual discomfort, I would insist that they do a scan.

I've heard about the digestive enzymes but haven't read up on them. Well, IF they are non-toxic then I suppose it would be okay to use it. Yes, please do post back with any info about the outcome if you do use them.

Normally, I get along Good with my medical team but I can be a Little outspoken/persuasive when it comes to asking my Dr.'s for tests, etc. if I am concerned about something. They know I only bother them with, out of the norm tests/treatments if I have Good cause for it.

I didn't ask Richard if he tried to send you a pm again since his first one didn't go through, which is odd. I'm going to send you a pm to see if it works.

*It went through as you noticed.
