Dry mouth, dry lips, drinking water nonstop while going outside. What could be this?

For the couple of weeks I have been drinking alot of water almost nonstop (very thirsty) which is causing me to pee nonstop. The past couple of days I have had a very dry mouth and dry lips and things are looking unfocused. It is usually if I go outside and I am thinking it's because of the polon. I have been tested for diabetes, blood pressure, etc and everything is normal. What could this be?
