In brief: See endocrinologist

4 conditions come to mind: a.
drinking too much water from an obsessive urge leading to water intoxication.. b. Diabetes insipidus -the pituitary no longer secretes the hormone (ADH) to control the urinary flow. (c)Uncontrolled diabetes mellitus. (d)If you are taking a lot of Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for the hives it would lead to dryness in the mouth->thirst. All of the above require a visit to the doctor.
