hi. i am a 25 year old female who was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes earlier this year. pretty much from the start of taking my medication (i am on metformin), i have been having leg pain. i had started exercising after i was diagnosed but i had to stop doing it because i would not be able to sleep at night for the horrible leg cramps. i decided it was lack of nutrients and started taking a potassium supplement, which stopped the cramps. now i am experiencing numbness, tingling and aching in my calves and knee joints. i told my doctor and she just dismissed it as "diabetic side effects", but i'm not convinced.
my blood sugar averages about 100 and i am trying my best with a lower carb diet. my diabetes is not severe and my doctor even told me that if i lose another 25 pounds that i can get off my medication so i'm confused as to why i'm having these symptoms.
any help you can give me would be appreciated. thank you.
