hi, this probably sounds really trivial but does anyone know what causes excessive thirst? It seems that no matter how much water, juice etc i drink i still feel thirsty and it's really irritating, especially when most the time i need to buy something to drink. I'm not sure if this is related but recently I've had other problems, there is a pain in my leg and I always feel so tired, but cannot get to sleep because of hearing and seeing things when i am half asleep and meaning my sleep patterns are very fragmented. It could be down to stress, I don't know, as I've exams approaching but I only hope these things don't have a negative effect on my work. Thanks to anyone who's taken the time to read this.

  • extreme thirst is one of the usual first signs of Diabetes. Would be a good idea to get this checked out soon just to be sure. Or are you perhaps taking a antihistamine causing dryness in your mouth? That could also cause it. But my first thought is to get the blood sugar checked.
