Reassure me

Here's the story: about a week ago I got up to go to the bathroom about every 2 hours. I even looked at the clock, just because it was odd. Granted, that night I'd had a glass of milk and a bottle of soda, so maybe it was just that. I've always been a big drinker (not booze, just milk, soda, juice, what have you) and so have to pee a lot, so I haven't thought much of it. But since that night it seems like I've been going a lot more. My lips are dry and I'm thirsty, tonight I'm a little dizzy, headachy and pukey-feeling. My blood pressure is pretty good and my sugar is 114, which my doctor says is borderline (I have bloodwork scheduled on Tuesday). A friend died about 6 months ago in a diabetic coma, so I'm paranoid about that. My urine is pale and kinda smelly (not that I smelled it before).

Is this all just confirmation bias? I immediately wiki-ed diabetes after the 2-hour night and I'm a little nervous, because it seems like I'm having the symptoms. Please tell me there's lots of reasons for this stuff?
