Is my metformin causing me to be sick?

I was just wondering if anyone who has taken Metformin has had any side effects with it. I have been on it for over 6 years now and have been sick to my stomache for the last 3 days. It started when my AF did and my AF was pretty consitant for 2 days and has now gone. I have a sick feeling all day and all night. one minute I am fine then the next I have to fight the urge to get sick. Today I did get sick. Crackers have helped but not alot. Lemon flavored seltzer helps to for a bit and then I feel sick again. I have not had much of a fever but it is at 99.2 degrees max. I have never felt this way while on Metformin.

I have been hoping its not but it just started out of no where. and like I said I have been on it for over 6 years. I feel good knowing I am not the only one.

My sugar levels out where it is suppose to be and does not drop.  I use mine for PCOS. The lst time I felt this sick was when i found out i was prego with my DD who is now 3.
