I was wondering if anyone has had this type of symptom... I have noticed since being on prozac that i have an extreme sensitivity to heat. i cant stay outside very long at all. And i may have learned this the hard way. I went to TN the other day to watch some dirtbike races and we parked like 2 miles away and got a ride. But, on the way back we had to walk. with my fibro, I didnt make it half way before i couldnt feel my legs or arms. and i had to lie down in the road 4 times. i got extremely sick and it was really REALLY scary and bad. Its humid in the South for those who dont know so it was over 100... I had all the symptoms of heat exhaustion before having all the symptoms of heat stroke, except for the unconsciousness and coma... but I had all the others.
It was the scariest thing thats ever happened to me and I was sure I was going to die. Not to mention I was there with ONLY my little brother and I was 2 hours away from home. This was the first time I had ever went out of town without my parents and such so I was nervous anyways and then I thought I was going to die. I thought my 14yo bro would have to drive us home. I tried to get people to stop and help, but no one did... I finally made it to the car. I wasnt even sweating anymore. i turned a funny color. and i was very agitated and acting really weird. i started to call 911 a few times, they had paramedics there for the races so i could have gotten help...but i didnt. i really should have i know. i was scared though and my instinct was to just get home. i had to wait about 30 minutes before i could even hold my head up to drive. i did my best and i made it home okay. it took a few hours before i felt okay again, but i felt the affects of it for a few days..
has anyone taking prozac ever had this kind of reaction to heat before? i have always lived here and Im used to this type of heat, i have never experienced this kind of thing before and i have always been outside and active in this type of weather. but i have never had this kind of problem until i started taking the prozac...any thoughts?
