Hello,

It is possible to have those symptoms related to even a pre-diabetes state, although it is not common. A 2-hour glucose tolerance test will help determine if you have pre-diabetes.

You can have those symptoms from other issues however, so if all your glucose testing is normal then your doctor should start looking into other possibilities.
take care.
