Excessive thirst and exhaustion. What it could be ?

I have been feeling very tired for the past few days, yet I was unable to sleep for two whole nights. I have been very dizzy, and if I stand up for too long I get a rapid heart rate , shallow breathing and I feel as if I am going to faint. I have also noticed that my toe nails have become purple. I have constant thirst although I am drinking lots of fluids and a pounding headache

Hi, Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum.
Get your Blood Sugars tested and since you have Blue toe nails, get yourself evaluated by a Physician to rule out any blood circulation problem.
Take Care.

welcome to HealthcareMagic
you should immediately consult physician and get checked up and tests as required for proper diagnosis and definite treatment
do not delay
you may have anemia or some endocrine problems
you are having postural hypo tension and the giddiness and palpitations
lie down as soon as you feel giddy
