Hi--in addition to the thirst are you urinating more often than usual? Do you have any medical conditions or take any medications?

OK. While I can't tell you exactly what's going on here, you definitely need to see a doctor about this as soon as possible. One possibility would be mononucleosis--a viral disease that takes up to six weeks to resolve and has no specific treatment except for rest, food and fluids, and ibuprofen. That said, this could be untreated diabetes or perhaps low thyroid, both of which need immediate evaluation and treatment. You could also have an electrolyte problem as in low potassium and/or magnesium levels. The point here is, this has gone on too long for you just to try to take care of it by yourself, so please see a doctor today
