VERY thirsty at night, but tested negative for diabetes?
I am in my early 30's and have had this problem for several years now. I don't drink that much water during the day...maybe 2 glasses. But I get really thirsty at night and can't go to sleep because I actually feel like I'm burning up. I get really hot and irritable and can't sleep. I have to have a jug of water next to my bed so I can drink it at night. I drink water for the first couple hours after going to bed and then I wake up sometimes to drink more water at like 2 or 3 am. I got tested for diabetes and did a hormone test because I was wondering if I was pre-menapasal and it all came back normal. I don't know what else it could be. My tongue is always very dry too. I probably end up drinking about 64 oz of water at night. I'm so tired of it. Is this normal because I don't get enough water during the day? I can't eat high sodium foods either because then that 64oz of water at night can almost double!

Here is some of what Medline has to say about excessive thirst. Drinking lots of water is usually healthy. However, the urge to drink too much may be the result of a physical or emotional disease. Excessive thirst may be a symptom of high blood sugar (hyperglycemia). It can be an important clue in detecting diabetes. Excessive thirst is a fairly common symptom. It is often the reaction to fluid loss during exercise, or to eating salty foods. Causes * A recent salty or spicy meal * Bleeding enough to cause a significant decrease in blood volume * Diabetes * Diabetes insipidus * Drugs such as anticholinergics, demeclocycline, diuretics, phenothiazines * Excessive loss of water and salt (possibly due to not drinking enough water, profuse sweating, diarrhea, or vomiting) * Loss of body fluids from the bloodstream into the tissues due to: o Conditions such as severe infections (sepsis) or burns o Heart, liver, or kidney failure * Psychogenic polydipsia, the result of a mental disorder A very strong, constant urge to drink may be a sign of a psychological problem, which may mean psychological help is needed. When to Contact a Medical Professional * Excessive thirst is persistent and unexplained * Thirst is accompanied by other unexplained symptoms, such as blurry vision and fatigue * You are passing more than 5 quarts of urine per day What to Expect at Your Office Visit The health care provider will get your medical history and perform a physical examination. Medical history questions may include the following: * How long have you been aware of having increased thirst? * Is it consistent during the day? * Is it worse during the day? * Did it develop suddenly or slowly? * Are you eating more salty or spicy foods? * How much salt do you have each day? * Did you change your diet? * Have you noticed an increased appetite? * Have you noticed an unintentional weight gain? * Have you noticed an unintentional weight loss? * Has your activity level recently increased? * What other symptoms are happening at the same time? * Have you recently suffered a burn or other injury? * Are you urinating more or less frequently than usual? * Are you producing more or less urine than usual? * Have you noticed any bleeding? * Are you sweating more than usual? * Is there any swelling in your body? * Do you have a fever? A psychological evaluation may be recommended if the health care provider suspects a psychological compulsive thirst. Your fluid intake and output will be closely watched. Diagnostic tests that may be performed include the following: * Blood glucose level * CBC and blood differential * Serum calcium * Serum osmolality * Serum sodium * Urinalysis * Urine osmolality Alternative Names Increased thirst; Polydipsia; Excessive thirst So, my question to you, what information do you know about yourself that you do not want to reveal that may answer the mystery to you? And why isn't your physician continuing to assist in exploring the cause of this problem? You mean, he did a few tests, said you are fine, and let you go on with these symptoms? If so, find a new doctor. Are they some psychological issues you are facing, but don't want to share? Some heavy stresses? Changes in Life situations? Financial crises? Emotional wounds? There is a reason why this is suddenly happening. It is not normal. That much you know. Do some investigation on line yourself. You may find some clue joggers for yourself.
