Unquenchable thirst. Diabetes results negative. What other reason could it be?

Hi Since last summer, I keep getting bouts of unquenchable thirst for days and / or weeks at a time, which then results in me going to the toilet all the time. I went to the Doctor and was tested for diabetes but the tests came back negative. It has started to flare up again over the past few weeks. I notice it only tends to happen mid-week when I am at work. I wonder if it is stress related as I am under immense pressure at work or to do with something I eat or drink at work. At work, I drink tea and coffee out of a machine, with contains powdered milk and drink orange squash. There is nothing else I have at work that I do not have at home. Can you advise me? I currently can t quench my thirst, can t sleep (stress-related) and have a headache but don t want to take headache medication every day. Thank you.

You're complaining of excessive thirst.
But you are not a Diabetic.
History suggests the it may be due to dehydration and stress.
It occurs during the midday and at work.
If there are any organic causes it should happen in other times also.
Rehydrate yourself with adequate amount of water.
Good amount of rest and relaxation is needed.
