I live in Southern California.  We really didn't have too much a summer, it was mostly overcast most of the time.  But this weekend it has been REALLY hot!!  And I live on the coast where it rarely gets hot, but this weekend even where I lived was hot.
 
Anyways, we went out for a short time both Saturday and Sunday.  And both days I ended up having to tell my husband I needed to go home as I was really nauseous.  I later put two and two together and realized the heat was the cause.
 
Does it affect you like that?  It kinda sucked as in the morning I felt good, but after being outside for a bit, I felt like crap.

Yep, I don't do well in the heat Gail. Living in the Midwest, we get some real hot, humid days. Yesterday, it
changed, going from 92 down to 58. So I'm hoping that fall is here. But, I have a feeling we haven't seen
the last of the heat...
I hope you start feeling better soon. It's been so long since you felt anywhere near your normal.
Thinking of you.

Yes, heat definitely affects me. In fact, if you remember a month ago when I lost movement in my arms/legs, it went away but the second I stepped outside into 100' weather I could tell it was returning and 10 minutes later I was back to unable to move. Heat is always going to cause problems for me which is why I'm looking forward to winter :)

Gail, I was wondering, you say it's cool where you are. How cool is it usually?

Well its normal this time of year to have the Santa Ana'a where it gets hot and dry. But I live in the San Diego area, and we have pretty normal temps most years. But because of El Nino this year we stayed below normal. And that was about 10-15 degrees below normal. I live about 6 blocks from the beach and its usually very pleasant where I am. But we had a heat wave hit this past weekend and it got REALLY hot (90's) (for us) where I live. Its usually in the mid 70's about this time of year.

The heat PLUS humidity is what does it for me... I get super nauseous and loose energy very fast when the humidity is high.  I do prefer summer to winter though.

I get super fatigued and nauseous when I get hot and my joints start hurting badly. Everyone gets very frustrated when in the summer I opt out of alot of actvities based on the heat and if they are out door or in an un-airconditioned area. People just think I am a wimp. Wish they could feel what heat does to me.

Heat is ennervating; extreme heat + high humidity might well make me nauseous, but we never really get that kind of weather in the UK. And just recently it has been cold, wet, grey, overcast, drizzly, and rainy. I miss wearing shorts and t-shirts, but I would rather have this than unbearably hot and humid weather.

Dunny-2 days ago it was 90 here in Georgia and the temp right now is 58. Strange how 2 days can make such a huge difference.

Nanners-The heat never really bothered me before, but a couple months ago I was outside planting shrubs, and it made me so sick. I had to sit down a few times and rest and let the nausea die down a bit before continuing. Had I not been in the middle of something that had to be finished, I would have gone inside and rested. Since then I limit how long I'm outside to make sure that doesn't happen again.

Wow thanks so much for your thoughts! Exactly how you all describe you feel is how I felt. I hate that nausea feeling so much!!
