I need an opinion. Any suggestions would help for a worried student.

Posted by coffeeaddict @coffeeaddict, Apr 11, 2019

Ive noticed frequent uriniation, and ive had pins in needles in my feet for a little while now. While the frequent urination happened recently, the pins and needles in my feet has been going on for months, and my doctor said not to be worried about that regard. However, with the urination, this worries me as ive read these are symptoms of diabetes. I am a student who drinks a lot of black coffee, but for over a year already. Is this something i should be really worried about, or should i wait and observe a bit longer?

Hi there,
My first question was going to be do you have Diabetes? I assume you don’t.
Coffee is a diuretic thus probably causing your frequent urination. Cut back on coffee and fluids in general and see if you notice any change.
I’d be more concerned about the pins & needles..
They too can be a symptom of Diabetes. You may want to ask your doctor for a Hemoglobin A1C test which will measure your blood sugar over the past 3 months. Do you have excessive thirst? Blurred vision? Weight changes?
Other possibilities include

1. pinched nerves
2. pressure on nerves
Compressed nerve
maybe pregnancy
3. peripheral neuropathy
4. Various medications
5. Thyroid issues
6. Stroke or TIA
That’s all I can think of but there are many other reasons.
You should go to the doctor for your own piece of mind.
Good luck,
Jake
