I am experiencing excessive thirst and fatigue. They always happen at the same time. Over the last few months it is getting worse and worse.

My Dr. has checked my sugar and said it is normal. Thyroid is normal. I feel horrible and nobody can help me. Any advise as to what tests or kind of specialist I should see is helpful.

  • There are several conditions that come to mind. What is age/sex/weight proportions? I have insulin-resistant pcos and whenever its out of whack I drink like a fish and can never quench my thirst. I drink like 12 bottles of water a day on a slow one lol. However my sugar levels are always in perfect range :-) Same when I had gallstones and kidney stones.

  • have you developed any purple striations on the abdomen, weight gain, behavioral problems? Cushing's Syndrome (I have) might be a consideration. Thirst and fatigue were two big problems I had.
