Hi I am 52 yr male living in South Africa - the last 5 days has been really wierd - will see doctor tomorrow. Listen to symptoms and can anyone help - are they all related or do I have more than one medical problem.
Foul tasting (like rotten eggs) burping. Bloating of stomach with excessive foul smelling gas. Every morning release of plenty gas with mild type runs (not totally watery), aching joints, retracted and swollen gums, swollen lymph nodes under chin, sore neck below left ear.
Sometimes I feel light headed and a little dizzy. I was at the doctor twice 4 and 3 weeks ago and was told I have diabetes 2 and put on metformin (glucophage) pills. My blood tests showed 10.7 first time and 7.1 after 1 week on pills. My blood pressure was 101 / 61. He said that diabetes can cause problems such as aching joints etc. Control glucose levels and see if it improves. The other symptoms are more recent.
Any comments please
