I have been to the doctor...

I do not like to be hot. I can't even take a steamy shower. When I get hot, I become dizzy, sluggish, exhausted, and I get migranes. I have asked my doc many times if there is anything I can do about this, and she seems to think that I am making it up. I did read somewhere that there is something like a heat allergy, but I can't remember, and I am not a hypochondriac. I had always thought I felt like this because I was overweight, or dehydrated. But, there was one summer when I was very thin, and taking care of myself, eating right, and drinking lots of water. I still felt like crap, I worked in a factory, and thought I was going to die everyday. Is there anyone else who is the same way?? How do you cope? I hate feeling like this, and it has gotten worse now that I am pregnant. I am miserable! Please help lol, maybe if it IS a real condition, I can tell my doc so that she will believe me.

  • I did a Google search "Extreme Heat Sensitivity". There were a ton of results with the same symptoms you have. One that particularly bothers me mentioned MS, which is extremely important to diagnose early.
    I recommend finding a new doctor for a second opinion. It is not your doctor's job to determine if you are faking, it is his job to determine what's wrong whether his patient is 'faking' or not.

  • It could also be a heart condition. Find a new doctor and demand answers.
