Fibro And Heat Intolerance. Is Heat Intolerance Due To Having Fibro?

Heat Intolerance affects my life deeply.

I have many issues, but this is the one I dread the most. Because there are instances where I have no control over it.

If I feel overheated, it starts with a sweat on my face, a tingling in my nose, I start feeling dizzy, then I get nauseous, I feel like I have to use the restroom & need to throw up at the same time. It's crazy. Then I faint.

I'm one of these people, that once I'm inside the building… read more

I’ve been struggling for years with the heat. I dread summer. My friends laugh at me because my hair is always soaking wet & I constantly have sweat pouring off my face. It’s like a faucet. I never knew it was associated with fibromyalgia. I wish there was more research being done on fibromyalgia. I’ve had it for about 40 years & was always told not to tell anyone. At least now it’s being recognized. I hope we all get some answers soon or a cure!!

Yes! I live in Buffalo NY so it’s mostly cool/cold here. In July and August my pain is better BUT I am so intolerant to the heat. It’s unbearable. I always need a fan, even in the winter to circulate air. I can’t tolerate stuffiness either.
When it’s very hot (mid 80s and up) I stay in A/C, don’t go places where I’d have to walk outside without shade, and don’t exert. My biggest summer nightmare is an amusement park when it’s dreadfully hot, all that noise, crowds, flashing lights, ugh.
Make yourself comfortable, no accommodation is too silly. Love and energy to you!

Yes I feel this way too. Our thermostats don’t work well. Too hot or too cold.
A friend of mine keeps her home really cold, she has FM.
It drives me crazy that we’re so sensitive to so many things.
He youbeen checked for lupus? People with lupus also have troubles with heat.
But FM does too.
