Iam a 23 yr old student with diabetes being on both sides of my family. I have been recently experiencing symptoms that lead me to believe that I can be diabetic. I was 174lbs this time last year and now Im 156lbs which I havent been since high school. I havent been energetic in a long time and I have these stomach pains every now and then. My feet and hands get this tingling sensation to the point where they go numb for 10 seconds. I have frequent leg pains. When I have sex with my girlfriend I can not maintain an erection like I used to which leads her to believe Im falling out of love with her. Ive been to see my doctor and all of the test I have taken are coming back fine. Ive took a 2hr glucose fast recently and that has came back perfect. My thyroid is fine but Im still not my usual self. I need help with what to do and where to go because my doctor probably thinks Im crazy now. Please help me.

  • Recently some symptoms are felt less than others. I havent gained a pounds since and now, as i type, my arm has been pulsating along with other veins in my body. Im getting tingling sensations in my face, neck, and upper arms that tends to be a bit itchy. Im urinating more than usual. Like 4 times in the morning before drinking a thing. But im still being told that my thyroid and blood sugar levels are fine. Im in the process of getting a 2nd opinion on Oct 1st so I can only hope for a bit more help then.
