I was feeling bad this am, my fibro pain was hurting and I felt fatigued, so I thought it would be good to take a nice relaxing bath. I soaked for at least 30 minutes while listening to some relaxing music. When I got out I felt worse! I got sick feeling, headache worse, fatigued or drained, nauseated and I feel like I have a debilitated feeling like someone has my body or head in their grip, I don't know how to explain it, but I feel like I can't handle anymore stimulis. spell?, My eye muscles even hurt. My thinking is just weird. This is horrible, I don't think this is fibro, getting this sick feeling. What a bad day. :(

My family doc told me the original test for MS long before they had any of the technology they have now was to submerge them in hot water and if they displayed certain symptoms most likely they were told they had MS.
The symptoms were (that i can recall) were nausea,confusion,aggitation and fatigue.
I soooooo miss soaking in a scalding hot tub after work...now I have to take quick,luke warm,showers that include shaving as fast as I can.
If the water is too hot I'll be a mess for at least an hour.
I can't even use heated pools at hotels or hot tubs..... bluh..lol

Ya hate to say that it is MS for sure or not, but the terrible feeling that you recieved from the hot bath sure is similar to that of MS symptoms. Hillbumm is absolutely right about how they use to do a dx for MS using a hot bath...so simple but all so true.  People with MS usually do not tolerate heat very well, whether it is from a bath, outside temperature, dressed to warmly, etc, etc.  And when u become too warm, all of your symptoms pop to the surface..tingling, vision problems, heart palps, etc.  And it does without a doubt bring on fatigue...

I said to my wife the other day, "gees dear, I have not had a bath in years"...she said to me, "do you have any idea how bad that sounds"....ha!!!
