Withdrawal symtoms with Januvia.
I have been having a feeling of fullness in my upper chest and pain in my back. I thought I was gaining weight as my bra felt tighter in that area. I also had been having constipation issues and could not have a decent bowel movement. After seeing a P.A. at a gastroenterologist office she put me on Miralax and more Citrucel to get me moving. That did help my constipation but did not help the fullness under my breast bone. I had my Family Physician run blood tests for my liver as I had not been feeling well. Those came back normal. A few months later I was still not feeling well and I saw my F.P. again. It seemed as though a light went on in his head and he looked very concerned. He said he would take me off the medication Januvia that I had been taking for some years and put me on Metformin. About 2 days later I was back in his office and I was having severe pain in the same area in my abdomen and pain in my upper back. I was in serious pain and I started crying. I had been waking up with a headache like I had never had before. My body was aching like I had the flu and my lymph-nodes all over my body were hurting like crazy. I did not have any respiratory problems to go with this event. I was in shock at how bad I felt. I told the doctor all this and I think he did not believe me. He gave me some painkiller that causes constipation so I took a 1/2 a pill and did not take anymore. I did not need any more incidents with constipation. I am wondering what caused all this because I still have abdominal pain and back pain after this incident. I was thinking that I had a withdrawal from the Januvia. Has any one else had an event like this after stopping Januvia? I would like to hear about it or if you know of anyone that has had an experience like this. Thanks
