Does Anyone Else Find That They Have An Intolerance To Heat?

Does Anyone Else Find That They Have An Intolerance To Heat?

I find that I'm becoming very heat intolerant. Almost to the point of panic. When my mother took all of us on a cruise to Mexico I got off the boat with everyone else in Puerta Vuerta and within 20 had to run into the ocean. It was scary not being able to cool off in my own body. It was oppressive. No one else did that, so I felt dumb doing that. Once it gets hot out I have to be in an air conditioned environment ot I'm not comfortable....:( I'd really… read more

DeeDee who is your doctor? Have you had a brain or spinal MRI? I have brain lesions but no demylenation.

I went on as a "limbo lander" with MS suspected. When I found I didn't have it, I had made so many friends I am still on there. I personally think no one should be given a fibromyalgia diagnosis without ruling out MS. Due to the prevalence of pesticides in our foods and GMO, these diseases are increasing exponentially.

Yes, my kids complain all the time how cold it is in the house. I sometimes have the a/c on in the winter. Even when it is cold in my house I will start sweating. Funny thing is though, I do better in the spring/summer than the fall/winter.

You Guys have no idea what reading your heat problems has done for me. I have been suffering for almost 34 years with this and doctors just could not help me. I am almost crying with relief that I am not a weirdo!!!

I cannot tolerate the heat. I literally almost had a heat stroke one summer and this was before I got fibro. So now with fibro it does not take much for me to start getting sick. I freeze my poor husband out of the house. He has no problem with heat never has. But the winter is bad too when its extremely cold. If we are going from a restaurant to the car just that short few minutes of cold brings on a horrible flare.
