Main symptoms include excess thirst, hunger and incresaed frequency of urination. Other symptoms can include blurry vision, numbness. I recommend you to go to your physician for a simple blood test to determine if you have diabetes or not.

Hi. I went to the doctor today and they told me I have inflammation around my rib cage and a really really high heart rate. Also experiencing problems after eating with stomach, all mid stomach and left side. Also having radiating pain in my back. He couldn t give me a definitive answer, but I need piece of mind.

Hi, I am 56, average weight (57kg), 169cm tall. Lately I had several occasions where after drinking green tea or water I develop belching and severe dull pain in my left kidney area, sometimes lasting for 2 days. Often it is when I twist my torso or do anything just after drinking. It is not indigestion - it is usually on empty stomach. Could it be something with my kidneys or pancreas? I am taking pancreatin for digestive problems. I also have sliding hernia and a host of other problems, but this is a new one.
