In December they upped the metformin to 1000 mg and on December 31 I had lower flank pain on left side. Went to er they said pulled muscle. In January upped to 1500 mg metformin started having same pains. Lasted a couple days and went away. Wednesday get switched to metformin er at 2000 mg and today lower flank pain. Is that a side effect of the metformin while adjusting or something else. Kidneys are fine according to the cat scan and blood tests.

I don't know. I haven't heard of muscular pains being associated with metformin. As far as the kidneys, the doctor needs to monitor you with lab tests that include kidney function. You should tell your doctor that you have now and explain what's going on. Ask him directly if he thinks it could be the result of metformin.

I hope you're doing better!
