Question: I'm having a warm flushing sensation in my left abdomen. It only lasts a second, but I have it frequently. My abdomen is soft and not distended. Also, I do not have any pain--just this warm sensation spreading downward on the left side of my abdomen that stops after a second. Then a couple of minutes later, I feel it again.

Thanks for the query.
Since you are not having any other complaint like pain abdomen or bloating or any urine problem,the most likely cause for your warm flushing sensation seems to be due to VIT B12 deficiency.
This deficiency develops insidiously over a long period of time and specifically in people who are taking METFORMIN.
I advise you to take oral B complex or B12 vitamin,twice a day for few weeks and see the response. I hope you shall definitely be all right.Alternatively you can take B 12 injections also.Taking injectable B12 gives better and fast results.
Take B12 injections every alternate days for 2 weeks.
In case you fell that there is no response or your problem is worsening,you may consult your doctor.
I hope it helps however you may revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck
