Can see Dr. again: With such symptoms, one can visit the doctor again to ask why there is so much thirst. It can be related to kidney problems, hormonal problems, dry mouth (sometimes auto-immune in cause, sometimes a side effect of medications), etc... Some blood and urine tests might be needed, to help figure things out.
