Dont worry: Doctors should not feel that you are wasting their time. We are trained to understand that sometimes symptoms may be difficult to diagnose and sometimes the problem may be related to anxiety or stress and need therapy just the same. A stress or emotional problem is just as real and serious as diabetes. The job of the patient is to not get angry if this is the diagnosis and work with the doctor.
