    Hi there Maso! I have a feeling the questioner IS the healthcare provider. Maybe a clinical psychologist. My youngest has her Masters in this area and is also working on her Doctorate. Never received a grade below an A. Sorry, needed to brag about my kid for a moment. Hope you don't mind.

    First I am aslo proud of your daughter (maybe she can treat me!!! )... your are not bragging... that is just the way it is ... congrats, you also have a nice Holiday.
    A bit of input (in the best way intenteded)... I am not in Peru. Do not get we wrong I have, nor will ever be a racist at all, I am in Chile and therefore I am Chilean... down here we have always have had disputes over nothing or somthing with Peruvians... some have migrated to Chile... mafia type, and as you know they are considered to be the second largest producers and distributors of cocaine... so for some years now, we do have a corrupt legal and police system, they have managed to spread this desease among our society... so here in Chile they are not very likeable. I thought you should know... since we are friends, I am not offended in anyway whatsoever my Darling.
    All my best wishes for you and your family have a HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY! and FOR AL US CITIZENS!

    I am sorry you are feeling poorly because of Metformin. I was mis-diagnosed as Type 2 in 2003 and given Metformin straightaway. It made me so sick that I could not get out of bed. I complained to the Doctor and he gave me a prescription for Meclizine - which is now available over the counter as a anti-motion sickness medicine here in the US. I took that for almost 6 months before the nausea began to go away. Like you, I had other physical proble ...
