Your symptoms, are more relevant for decreased blood sugar- hypoglycaemia (not hyperglycaemia-diabetes).

Get yourself, blood sugar checked and get diagnosed.

I developed a case of hives/ welts on my body starting behind my right knee and one on each butt cheek. the next morning i awoke with two hives on my right inner hip. All these hives spread into larger welts as the day progressed and one developed on my left hip becoming very large. The welts were very itchy until I took some benedry. My sister has celiac disease and she said she discovered it with the onset of the same exact symptom. I'm thinking that could be my issue. I however, took a couple of urinary tract pills to relieve the symptoms of a UTI the day before, although this medication never gave me a rash before. I also took a 500mg cipro for the bladder infection, which never gave me symptoms before either. Before my rash was first noticed I had pasta for dinner, and a bagel earlier in the day for breakfast. I have been consuming lots of wheat, and maybe that is the reason for a sudden reaction. I have a history of yeast infections, my gyno told me I have a shortage of good bacteria- lactobacilis. I try to take probiotics as often as possible to help with this, but I don't know what kind of lactobacilis i shoudl be taking. I read up on candida, and think many of those symptoms relate to many issues I have, but maybe it's really a glucose intolerance. I also have many symptoms of ADD, and possibly that relates as well. Also, my grandmother was diabetic.

Need not be diabetes only. Check your hemoglobin levels as well along with blood sugars. This would indicate your current health status. Get a physical examination done by General Physician to guide you better.

My legs and feet will randomly turn bright red and tingle and itch. Is this a sign of diabetes? I have almost all the symptoms. Non stop thirst, always sleepy, urinating all the time, hungry a lot even though I just ate, and like I said itchy red legs and feet. I ve been tested one but it said I didn t have it. Should I get tested again? Please get back to me.

I am a 56yr old Paraplegic male, recently I have had a bout of pneumonia which I am 99% over, however since I've been sick I have developed an ectopic heart beat. I have discussed this with my GP and have had an ECG which showed up the irregularity , however I'm still stressing over this. When I have one of these attacks, I have a funny feel wave over me. I don't know how else to describe this feeling other than its a fainting like feeling but I don't faint. I have also been recently put on blood pressure tablets. My question is? would any or all of this contribute to the onset of this ectopic heartbeat ? And of course is this going to go away without me dropping dead
