From this study (6 days ago):
I have so many side effects that chronic fatigue seems simplistic. Almost every cell in my body has been damaged. I have seen over 20 doctors since my cascade of symptoms started (13years ago). They all play dumb, tell me my problem is not in their specialty, or offer me antidepressants. Yet when I look up actual research, I see that most of the pieces of the physiology of my syndrome have been known for years (some for decades).
I also note that on this web site, there is no way to report a high number of side effects or simplify them as mitochondrial damage.
I believe it is the intent of this web site, the AMA, drug companies, and most doctors to deliberately avoid "knowing" about the holocaust of poisoning that is occurring in the name of heath care.
The logarithmical explosion of cancer, obesity, depression, allergies, auto-immune diseases, "rare genetic diseases," and diabetes (to name just a few) matches exactly the explosion of pharmaceutical consumption.
It would be appropriate to apply the scientific method instead of the profit motive to further human health.

I did have lyme, but it was treated immediately at the appearance of the classic rash. I have been tested several times since - always negative. I looked up mycoplasma and serratia, as you suggested, but found almost none of the symptoms apply to my problems. Thank you for the information. I can now pass that info on to anyone with those sort of symptoms. My symptoms can all be explained by mitochondrial damage caused by doxycycline and azithromycin. Thanks again for your reply. We all need to teach each other as much as possible, as the doctors won't do it.
noscreenname on Jun, 23, 2014:
if you have lyme, youre 75% of 100 likely to have either mycoplasma, or serratia. these cause kidney stones, which in turn, cause damage or loss if not surgically removed (struvite type) AND the way the spirochete and other partner bacteria hide from the meds. The lyme docs have known this all along when they said, "it hides where meds cannot get to it". 75% of lymies having myco...= struvite stones that will keep ANY coinfections going on indefinitely via relapse. Its all about meal ticket patients here....sad.

I was diagnosed Type 2 diabetic late 2010 and started onn Medformin 250 mg twice a day. very strange that my blood sugars were normal afdter 1 week on the meds and continued to be normal even after having a none fasting blood sugar and A1C done, which were all normal as well.
Recently I had kidney stones from hell and was rushed to the hospital after being on Medformin for 6 Months.
Being in the pharmaceutcal field I am convinced that Medformin causes Kidney Stones. Drug companies do not report all side affects from clinical trials to the FDA, this I can tell you they use the data that is good for them to get their dug approved. I am sure that the numbers are higher for people developing kidney stones from Medformin.
Wil on Aug, 5, 2011:
I have been on Metformin 250mg twice daily for about 7 months. My first ever kidney stone event occured at 5 months with a second event at 7 months. Metformin was the replacement for Avandia which I had taken for years without incident. I am 68 years old.
Kenneth Cruthis on Mar, 5, 2013:
I am seventy years old and in pretty good health, I am borderline type two diabetic. My doctor prescribed Metphormin and within a week I was passing multiple small kidney stones and after about a week , still passing stones, then I quit for a couple of weeks and the stones subsided, then I started taking the drug again and the stones started back up again, now I have had a history of stones in the past but nothing as frequent as this. I started taking 2000 mg. of Calcium each day and haven't been bothered with stones in several years until I started taking Metphormin. This is the only Generic drug that I know of for non insulin dependent diabetes. I may try it again for another test. I have decided that my health is my reasonability with loosing weight, diet and exercise.
Wil on Mar, 6, 2013:
UPDATE: August and September 2012 had Lithotripsy for two large stones. Also stopped Metformin after consultation with Dr and reevaluation of the need. next recheck due in May 2013
