    I don't have diabetes but I have a lot of the symptoms so I have an appointment next week.

    I usually go to the bathroom between 10 and 15 times a day, my mouth gets dry all the time and I feel like I have to be constantly drinking something. Today I went to McDonalds and immediately after felt really hungry. Felt light headed almost the whole day today. This morning it felt like I was losing slight sensation in my fingertips on my right hand.

    I was going to the bathroom alot, almost drank everything in the house, for some reason i felt like my skin was being pricked by needles, and sleeping alot.

    I had a appointment the next week like you but then I threw up, so my doctor took me the next hour. I was dxd with a blood sugar of 636.

    Are you sure you can't have your appointment at a earlier date? A big mistake people make is waiting till the appointment.

    I lost major weight, my hair stopped growing, my stomache got really bloated, things tasted bitter, I threw up regularly, I wet the bed about three times per week, I was always very hungry and very thirsty. I waddled, I was exhausted, easily out of breath, frequently dizzy, not sleeping well. Couldn't concentrate for longer than a minute. Really painful stomache ache. Loss of sexual interest. Extreme sensitivity to light.

    I saw a doctor because I had been sick for a long time and I felt that if I continued to be sick like that, I would be unable to continue holding a job and going to school.

    In retrospect, I should have bought a bottle of diastix and tested my urine. Sooo easy.

    I would not guess that you have diabetes; your symptoms do not sound all that specific to me. But good luck.

    I had a non stop thirst. I went to the bathroom a lot...I remember going 7 times the night before my appt, and during the day I would have to go at least once an hour. I was always hungry, always tired. I finally went in because my mom made me.

    My mouth would get really sticky after soccer practice, my tongue would stick to the bottom of my mouth.

    Also, I woke up during the night with super painful calf cramps.
    Plus the other stuff, losing weight, drinking more, eating more, etc.

    My parents thought that I had the flu at first. I was throwing up, I lost forty pounds, I drank so much stuff, couldnt eat. At first as I said they thought that I had the flu and thought it would get better. Well I was like that for three days, then I couldnt stand anymore, I was losing my eyesite, I couldnt make a sentence at all, all that came out was blurred things, and I couldnt remember anythign. The doctors told me that if they would've waited any longer I would have went into a coma.

    sounds like diabetes to me

    I was hungry, thirsty, tired, had a dry mouth, constantly going to the bathroom,had no energy, hadn't gained weight in a year, and my arms tingled. You need to see a doctor. This sounds like diabetes.
