i am planning to go to a doctor but before I do i wanted to hear what everybody else thinks about my symptoms. last week friday i began noticing that i am drinking more and peeing more. everytime I pee i can smell a sort of sweet odor coming from what i urinate. its pale colored not too yellow and i pee alot. my mouth dries really quickly these days. usually my urine has that distinct sweet odor when i had just finished a bottle of soda or something. maybe after a big meal. but now more often. even when i did not have any soda.

i scratched my right foot because it was itchy and it bled a little bit. now the wound has a thin scab but it hurts when i press down. no discoloring or inflammation just pain if I press down.

i also get episodes of dizziness. it comes and goes. its not severe but i feel lightheaded for sure. my vision has been sharp. at times what i see might be a little cloudy. no fatigue problems i dont feel extremely tired or anything. just urination and thirst i guess.

it might be diabetes and it would suck to get the disease this early. im not obese but can lose a few pounds around my waist. i dont drink soda everyday nor eat alot. im wondering whats the problem. ive made an appointment for wednesday. thats two days from now.
