symptoms of...?

Ok, please, what do these symptoms sound like-?

Hungary all the the time-

exhausted

very thirsty

knees/legs tend to ache very bad

I hope It is just a bug, but i ask because I know certain things are inheirated and I don't know any thing about my dads real family, he was adopted-I don't have insurance to go to a docter if I don't have. I realize this may not be the place to ask, please bare with me!

If you have had the symptoms for a while now I would say possibly diabetes?

Without reading anyone else's responses, diabetes was the first thing that came to my mind too, especially the thirst issue. Also, a deficiency in certain vitamin and/or mineral levels can cause symptoms such as aching muscles.

Diabetes comes to mind for me too, but vague symptoms like that can be a lot of things. A simple blood can rule out or help a doctor confine diabetes. Something like a case of the flu could also produce those symptoms. I just got over a few days of terrible headache and muscle aches.
Good luck! I hope you feel better and find out what is going on.

yup my first thought would be diabetes, or also possibly metal poisoning, i.e. lead, mercury, arsenic, antimony, cobalt etc.

1. How much do you weigh?
2. Are you a male or female?
3. Does your mother or grandmother have diabetis (sp)
4. Does enemia run in your family?
5. Has anone in your family have CFS?

Diabetes is what first pops into my mind. You could always run to the pharmacy and pick up some diastix to check sugar levels in your urine, although a doctor visit is what I would really recommend especially since either way, you'd need to see a doctor.
I think some thyroid disorders have symptoms like you've described also.

Insurance deductable is usuallly higher then a doctor visit anyhow, so you get stuck with the bill anyhow, so if you thinking you need to go, you might as well.

But all this diabetic stuff reminds me of the Sugar Busters' diet, got the book at the public library and it supposed to work wonders for those that are borderline. They had a web site too,
http://www.sugarbusters.com/
It been 3 years since I've read the book and I am not fully aware of what's with the web sight, just suggesting an option.
