I have outbreaks of sweating and feeling nauseous. My nose gets very cold and my face is covered in sweat. I cannot see any blood in the diarrhea.
I have not been checking my blood sugars as doctor didn't seem to think I needed to - although I bought a kit if need to.
I did lose 2 stone when I started on metformin in November 2010.
It could be possible that I have had exposure to untreated water - I did my garden the other week and this involved contact with rubbish to throw out that could have had stagnant water on it (possibly even rat's urine?). In the course of working I got some small cuts and bruises etc on my hands, arm. I remember clearing some very old leaves out of the domestic drain with my hands.
Also at the weekends we have a place by a lake that I go to. Just back from Cornwall yesterday too - by the sea - but I haven't travelled abroad for a while.
Not sure if last response went or not.
But I said that the anus is burning.
When I go it is in response to cramps. Each time it makes it hurt more externally. Lot of flatulence too.
Was concerned it might be something serious?
