Tiredness, darkened underarms, tingling in fingers and toes. Diabetes or vitamin B12 deficiency?

I think i am becoming diabetic i am tired but that may be due to me waking up at 4am everyday and not sleeping i am not thirsty though but my underarms have darken or is that due to shaving also have tingiling feeling in my fingers and toes but i heard that could be related to a lack of vitamin b12 as i do not eat meat but do sometimes eat fish

Your history needs to include your demographics(age,sex) etc.
However, if you are concerned about diabetes you may get your blood sugar fasting and PP done,
Alternatively ,you may test your HbA1c levels to understand the mean blood sugar in past 3 months,
You may also check your B12, Vitamin D and calcium levels,
Donot worry all are cureable,
Wish you good health.
