    Basically, I've noticed I've been drinking a lot more than normal, and going to the loo more too (but I dunno which one is causing the other if you see what I mean). Also I've had trouble concentrating and getting wierd heaaches sort of behind my eyes that make it hard to focus on things sometimes. I'm tired quite a lot too, but I think thats cos I get less sleep than I used to - any ideas? Am I just being paranoid???

    It is possible you could be developing diabetes, the thirst can be due to there being too much sugar in the blood, so some is lost in the urine. As the urine is sugary, more water is added to the urine making you dehydrated. It also causes fatigue, weight loss and sometimes blurred vision. It is known as hyperglycemia, or high blood sugar.

    You may well not have this, and just be a bit under the weather. But I would strongly recommend visiting the GP, its just a simple test but if left it can become quite seirous when untreated. If you are worried, its always best to visit the GP.

    Thanks for the replies guys
    I just hate the thought of it being something like that, I just can't imagine it, as I'm usually really well and hardly ever even get stuff like colds.
    Has anyone been in a similar situation and it been something else?? (preferable less serious!)

    So long as there is a potentially serious cause its worth going to the doctor. I mean theres a tiny chance you have it, but that tiny chance should be enough to motivate you.

    I mean you wouldn't believe the number of people with rectal bleeding who assume haemorrhoids and then get diagnosed with serious colon cancer 10 years down the line because they "thought it was nothing". If you are noticing a change in your normal behavior then something is wrong. If you are worried about it the only way to be sure its not something seriously wrong is to see your doctor.
