Hi Anonymous

You need to see your health care provider. There are many possible explanations for these symptoms, and diabetes is only one of them. Anxiety is a possibility. Your posture could be causing it, or you could have a back problem or low blood sugar from not eating properly...there are too many variables to guess at here.

Just make an appointment for an exam and then you can figure it out and stop worrying about it. It is probably something minor, but you won't know until you see a professional.

Good luck and please keep us posted.
