Can Covid-19 cause excessive thirst?
Hello, I have been drinking a lot of water since I am diagnosed with COVID-19 since then I am experiencing excessive thirst. Why? Can Covid-19 cause excessive thirst? What should I do? I am 40 years old male.
@sanjeev Hello, Yes it can cause excessive thirst. I started feeling thirsty the entire day and night. I had to sip water every five minutes to keep my mouth and throat wet. Saliva secretion from the glands almost stopped. Due to the excessive thirst, I could not sleep at night as my throat keep drying and it felt like a cracked wall. You should consult a doctor and get tested as excessive thirst is a symptom of other chronic diseases as well. Thank You.
