For the past few weeks or so I've noticed that I'm tired all the time and whenever I eat foods with a lot of sugar that I feel weird. I'll notice that my legs and my whole body just feels really heavy and exhausted, but I feel like there's energy coursing through my veins. Then after that happens I'll start to feel sort of light headed/dizzy and the lightheaded/dizzyish feeling will worsen if I get up or anything and is especially bad when I sing. And then I'll notice my feet are tingly and then they start to cramp up, and I'm really thirsty.

And then even when I don't feel weird, I'll get out of breath from doing the littlest things, and it's been this way for awhile.

At first I really thought this might be diabetes and was debating whether or not to go to make sure, and decided not to and thought I was silly for thinking so. I just don't want to feel like a fool going into the doctors office assuming that I have something when I don't.

But since this keeps happening with less and less amounts of sugar I got to thinking maybe it might be a good idea...what do you think? should I be concerned or am I just being paranoid?

Please let me know what your thoughts are! Thanks so very much!

You are not being paranoid. IT is so much better to know if you do or do not have diabetes. The doctors are there to help you medically and one of their jobs is to diagnose diseases. Please go to the doctor and get a simple fasting blood sugar and an A1C or whatever other tests your doctor suggests. Let us know how it goes.

Go to your doctor as soon as you can. Putting it off any longer might lead to more serious problems. All of your symptoms sound very much like diabetes. If it is not diabetes then blood tests might receal what it is. Whatever it is you need to find out so you will feel normal again after treatment.

Incidently, I have been diabetic for 63 years and I am very healthy. Don't let the possibility of being a diabetic cause you too much stress. It is possible to have a long, healthy life with diabetes provided you get yourself diagnosed before any damage is done.

Good luck to you!
