extreme thirst, weakness, urination frequent
First of all, I drink so much more than anyone I know, probably 6-8 qts a day, of any liquid I can get. I do not have diabetes mellitus, but I do wonder if I have diabetes insipidus. My Dad had it, and I have a connective tissue disease that sometimes predisposes to it. The drinking is because I am thirsty, not because I think I should drink that much. I also get orthostatic frequently (dizzy when getting to upright position). Does anyone out there have this? Does DDAVP nasal spray work well? Anything else that anyone has tried with success to keep the fluid in your system?
