Maybe there's an infection!!! Diabetes can slow down body's ability to fight infection. High blood sugar (glucose) leads to high levels of sugar in your body's tissues. When this happens, bacteria grow and infections can develop more quickly in people with diabetes. Common sites of infection are your bladder, kidneys, vagina, gums, feet, and skin. Early treatment of infections can prevent more serious complications.

While most infections in people with diabetes can be successfully treated, you must be able to recognize the symptoms of an infection in order to get proper and effective treatment. Notify your health care provider immediately if you have any of the following symptoms:
Fever over 101 degrees F (38.3 degrees C)
Sweating or chills
Skin rash
Pain, tenderness, redness, or swelling
Wound or cut that won't heal
Red, warm, or draining sore
Sore throat, scratchy throat, or pain when swallowing
Sinus drainage, nasal congestion, headaches, or tenderness along upper cheekbones
Persistent, dry, or moist cough that lasts more than two days
White patches in your mouth or on your tongue
Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea
Flu-like symptoms (chills, aches, headache, or fatigue) or generally feeling "lousy"
Vaginal itching
Trouble urinating: pain or burning, constant urge, or frequent urination
Bloody, cloudy, or foul-smelling urine

I have all these symptoms but I'm not diabetic. Am I going to die? I refuse to go to the doc unless it's REALLY urgent.

If you've had these symptoms for more then a few days, you should probably go.  

As the list has "bloody urine" and you say you've had all of them, then if you truly have this you should most definitely go.  

And why are you on the diabetes forum?

Be well
