How can I explain to my 3yr old my health condition?

My son is always wanting me to go outside to play. I have multiple sclerosis and have a hard time with the heat and humidity. My son does not understand why I can't be out in the heat for long periods of time. How can explain to him so that he will some what understand? Any advice will be helpful
