Hi everyone. 
I'm simply just inquiring and unsure of what is going on.  Well, I've noticed I've been getting some odd symptoms lately.  The major trigger was irritabilty and headaces and sleep.  I don't know if its either low iron or diabetes.  But I drink at least 10 - 16 glasses of water a day.  Mixed with other beverages like soda, juice, hot cocoa.  Obviously that means I use the john consistently.  I'm always tired.  I will get 8 hours of sleep or more a night and still feel like I need a nap once I'm home from work.  I sleep for an hour or so and still be in bed by 10pm.  I have been getting annoyed very easily.  Almost anything will irritate me.  As far as the tingling sensation described in symptoms, ya sure, I don't know.  I just always assumed it was my "leg fell asleep" or something of the sort.  I am on weight watchers so as far as the weight loss, it's due to the diet. 
I don't even know where to begin, what doctors to go to find out.  Am I just blowing things out of proportion?  Are there other things I should be looking for instead of symptoms posted on websites? 
What do you all think or any suggestion?

You can go to your doctor and ask for a fasting blood sugar. This test is done first thing in the morning before eating anything, you go to a lab and they draw blood. This will give the doctor a preliminary idea if you are diabetic or not or whether further testing would be called for. It's a simple test and will give you some peace of mind. Please call your doctor.
