      Skitt, it could be. Hey, a blood sugar test just takes two seconds, you just stick a finger, they should do that, or you can buy a kit at any drug store.

      Did they turn you away at the hospital? Because you really should get looked it quick, with all those symptoms.

      Are you also very thirsty?

      You're in pain - go. Now.

      Actually that's how it started for me. I had gone to the doctor with symptoms. He did not diagnose me on the symptoms, but drew some blood for a general test. Two days later he calls me - and tells me to go to the ER NOW! Not what I expected.

      I now feel like an idiot that I didn't self-diagnose a lot sooner, but there were some reasons I thought it might be something else.

      Go to the ER now. I did, on fewer symptoms.

      It was the right thing to do.

      That's where you go to feel better.

      Hey, we all hate hospitals, but at some point that's what they're there for.

    Go to the hospital NOW. If you have Type 1 diabetes it will kill you a lot quicker than the virus, and pains, thirst and weight loss are CLASSIC symptoms.

    If doctor says you have signs of diabetes then they are the ones who should be doing this test. If you have diabetes there should be a Diabetic Nurse at your surgery and you should be referred to them.
