I've been having a lot of trouble lately. I'm always thirsty and all the water that I drink makes me have to use the washroom a lot. Even if I haven't had water for a while I have to use the washroom frequently. Another thing is that I'm having a bunch of foot problems. For example, I have a small bruise and a cut on the top of my foot and I didn't notice it until I examined my feet. Also, I notice that I'll be walking around and then suddenly my entire foot will just start burning with pain and it gives out on me. Also, I can sometimes be very cranky for no reason and I'm pretty tired a lot of the time.
I've also got another question, I checked my blood 4 times and this is what I got, 111.6, 117.6, 123.1, 161.8. What does this mean? I checked these 5 or 6 hours after I ate in case that helps.

Welcome to HealingWell.  Do you have diabetes?  I'm asking this because you're already testing your blood sugar.  I think you need to see your doctor and discuss all this with him/her.  Being thirsty and peeing a lot can possibly point to diabetes.  Maybe the foot problems are related also, but you won't know this unless you see your doctor and have some lab tests done.  Those blood sugar readings are somewhat high if they were taken 5 or 6 hours after eating.  Please make an appointment with your doctor soon, ok?

Sometimes we need an "Old Stern Guy" to point us in the right direction. Good to see you again, AL. Missed not hearing from you! The little chicken is my granddaughter's favorite toy to teethe on. Hope all is well with you.

Super - did you set an appointment to see a doctor?

I'll third the 'stern suggestion'. You've written too many pointers into your message for you to ignore them. Go NOW and be glad you did later.

I had your warnings several years ago and ignored them. Don't be as stupid as I was.
