Oh yuck!!!! The heat does that to me too. It's horrible. I can't tolerate a hot shower at all. I need my showers or baths to be luke warm at best. Like you, I get physically ill! I'm that way when the heat is bad in the summer too. I prefer winters! Well, okay, spring and autumn...LOL. I think it depends on the person. But I know Fibromites have trouble with extremes. Be it hot or cold.
It all has to do with our hypothalmus gland. In the brain. That gland controls our body temperatures and what we can tolerate. It controls our "homeostasis" or equilibrium. In Fibro, that gland, along with 2 others, doesn't work right. If you look up HPA axis, you'll find a lot of info on it. If you mention that to your doctor you'll probably get a wide-eyed, shocked, response!! Hehe....
I can do anything through Jesus Christ who strengthens me. I have learned in whatever state I am in,to be content. Phillipians 4:11-13
