    Lightbulb Thirsty, Hungry, Shaky - Debate

    I'm a 20 year old petite female, overall healthy with no major health issues. My mother, on the other hand, has been suggesting that I may need to see a doctor, while I insist that my "symptoms" are simply a collection of characteristics that operate independently of one another. Iím simply looking for an educated, third party opinion. Should someone convince me otherwise, I will fulfill my end of the deal and go to the doctor.

    My motherís first reason for concern comes because she says that I drink a lot of water, more than the average person. I do drink a lot of water and I am constantly thirsty, but this developed about a year ago and so I can't imagine that it signifies anything. I simply have an overall feeling of thirst. I no longer drink soda and I am not a huge advocate of salt.

    Another symptom is that sometimes, with no particular alert except for a more common occurrence right before menstruation, I start having symptoms of trembling and shaky hands, headaches, and irritability if I don't eat every three hours. This weak and ill feeling goes away after eating. I admit this is fairly unusual and hugely inconvenient, but this is also something that's happened for a few years, so I cannot imagine it is truly significant.
    I also will have the opposite occur should I eat a large, heavier meal. I will sometimes start feeling shaky and nauseous with a general feeling of malaise. However, feeling unwell after eating is not as common as feeling unwell before eating.

    I am not an athlete, but I am physically fit. Not overweight, but not underweight. I eat a lot though and my friends always joke that I'm "always hungry." I have nasal allergies, eczema and dry skin, and a very, very mild case of asthma.

    I bruise very easily and sometimes have tingling in my fingertips. I also often get yeast infections. Other than that I think I just summed myself up pretty well health-wise. Also, all of the above ďsymptomsĒ are not very recent, but have been occurring over the past year.

    With your help this debate between my mother and I will be resolved. Opinions?

    I'd have to agree with Sundancejr on this, what you're describing are a lot of the symptoms of someone who is diabetic. Something else you may want to ask yourself is if you tend to have a real sweet-tooth, or craving for things with a fair amount of sugar in it. Reason this is important is, that again, this is a symptom of diabetes. Going to a Dr. to get it checked out is not a bad idea at all, especially given that the effects of diabetes going untreated on the body can be horrendous if left untreated, and the test is something so simple to do.
