Dot, I suppose it is possible and definitely something you should exclude it the symptoms last longer than a week or two. Your symptoms may of course fit in with a host of other diseases, but the easiest would be to have a finger prick test done at a pharmacy (it’s about R5) and find out whether it is due to diabetes or not. Good luck.
