Diagnosis and Symptoms

Question from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, USA:

Sometimes, after smoking a cigarette, eating, or getting angry/stressed out, my heart rate jumps to about 120 to 150. I start shaking, sometimes get a slight fever, feel fatigued, and have pain in my chest and arm. I also have a low body weight, urinate a lot, and am constantly hungry and thirsty. Does this sound like diabetes?


It could. However, the usual symptoms that occur with diabetes are frequent urination, extreme thirst, weight loss, blurring of vision, and fatigue.
