I drank one of those kinda big Gatorade things and I've had to pee about 5 times in the past 2 hours. Doesn't hurt or anything, just really annoying. My mouth gets dry all the time and I feel like I have to be constantly drinking something. Today I went to McDonalds and immediately after felt really hungry. Felt light headed almost the whole day today. This morning it felt like I was losing slight sensation in my fingertips on my right hand.

I'm 19 years old by the way, any idea?

  • All of the symptoms you just described (frequent urination, dehydration, change in appetite, lightheadedness, and the sensation in your hand) are symptoms of diabetes. Are you losing weight for no apparent reason? If so, get in a car and go to the emergency room right now. The longer you wait, the worse it will be. You're young enough that it could be Type I diabetes, in which case it will kill you if left untreated.blaze, you are an irresponsible moron, and your bad advice could kill someone. Knock it off.

You have symptoms of thirstyness hunger iritable, tired all the time, low energy, have to pee constantly and in some cased yeast infections accur, just if you know someone with diabetes have them check your bloodsugar and keytones. they will know what levels they should be. normal bloodsugar is 70-130 anything other you probably should go get checked out.
