Feeling different!

Hi everyone, i signed up here last year sometime, when I first found out about my diabetes. Since then I been feeling find until about 4 day ago. I'm not on any meds and I have not checked my glucose in awhile. (not so smart)I'm having cramps on my left and right side.(at the hip area) I'm unemployed right now and really cant afford to see a doctor. My ? is, should i take the metformin, or should i go to the doctor? Thanks everyone.

Was metformin prescribed for you? If so, you should probably take it, AND see the doc. What is your blood glucose now?

Unemployement can cause some nasty stress. I know, I've been there way too many times... Stress causes all kinds of issues with diabetes, so do monitor and take extra care. Good luck.
