Red itchy bumps that just appear randomly and itch horribly..then can be sensitive to touch almost like they burn or sting.
From this study (3 days ago):
I just recently started taking Lyrica however, as soon as I started metformin my feet began to swell and I can feel swelling in my joints, I am not able to wear regular shoes I wear the Vibram 5 finger toes shoes and I am not able to tolerate any type of socks. I have to sleep with flip flops and my feet elevated and I cannot cover my feet with any sheet or blanket. I have had this for about 2 1/2 years. My endocrinologist will not consider taking me off of metformin as this is what I feel is the problem with my feet.
From this study (1 month ago):
