For the past year I have not felt 'right' and as time goes on I seem to be getting more and more symptoms.

The first thing I noticed was I felt run down and tired. Secondly I noticed I started to need to wee alot - not it's at the stage I get into bed and need to get up 5 times at least for the toilet before I get to sleep and am always woken early due to needing the toilet. Other symptoms include dry lips and mouth, lower back ache and more recently feeling very anxious about even the smallest things - can't seem to turn my brain off. I have had cold twice in as many weeks now and it just all seems to be getting worse.

I've been to the doctors and had a urine test and two blood tests. First blood test showed high glucose levels. Second blood test flagged up I had an alcohol problem due to something being too high. Now I know I don't have an alcohol problem or even drink that much so what could be the cause?

Thanks for any help or advice in advance.

Re: Symptoms

If it's a high MCV that was flagged up, a common cause for that besides alcholism is B12 deficiency. If you haven't gotten tested for B12 deficiency, I suggest you try that next.

Let us know what your serum B12 comes out as, etc

Although frequent urination and high blood glucose suggests you should be evaluated for diabetes, as well.
