Only your doctor can tell you what's wrong.

But I can tell you that those are not the usual symptoms of diabetes, if that's what you're wondering.

Thank You, as that was my biggest concern.

Sounds a lot like autonomic dysfunction....I get a lot of that (I'm a female, so the ED isn't on my list), and medicine helps (inexpensive stuff, too- not some 50 bucks/pill med). Talk to your doc about it....

WOW!!!... Thank You... Yes, my problem does sound very much like autonomic dysfunction. Could you tell me the medication name, as low cost meds are important to me as I am self employed with no insurance.

After being diagnosed with a tilt table test, where my blood pressure dropped to 44/16, I was started on different meds....the one that ended up working for me (and everyone is different) is Inderal/propranolol- I get it through a patient assistance generic med place, but even at the pharmacy (depending on the dose), it's less than 40.00/month.
I was diagnosed with neurocardiogenic syncope and dysautonomia. Diabetes can have autonomic neuropathy, which can cause a lot of the same symptoms, so if you're concerned about that, talk to your doc- it's very important to know about that for sure
