I'm trying to figure out what could be wrong with me. The only drug I take everyday is acarbose. Its been about a year and my knee pain especially is unbearable. I've just stopped taking acarbose to see if the pain gets better
Hi my name is Melissa and I've been taking 25mg of Acarbose 3 times a day before each main meal. I have Hypoglycemia from a gastric bypass. I started it a little over a month ago. I've recently noticed I look 8 months pregnant with bloating and I've also been having some discomfort on the right side of my abdomen, above and next to my belly button on the right side. I can occasionally feel it creep into that side of my back. I've been very scared. I'm not constipated. Am I the only one here going through this?
