What is wrong with me????

I'm 36, and in generally good health. I just can't stand being outside in the heat. If it's more than 80, I feel like I'm going to pass out!! My LO loves to be outside and I feel bad pushing him off on his brother because I can't take the heat.... literally! Anyone else feel this way, or could it be a symptom of something else? I've never had this problem in summers past. Or am I just getting old?

  • As I have gotten older (now 49) my tolerance for the heat has dropped. Eliminating meat and dairy from your diet will definitely help you, along with drinking lots of water (at least 8 8oz glasses a day), staying away from refined suger and other processed foods, and focusing your diet on frutis and vegetables (7-8 servings a day, in at least 3 different colors), whole grains (6 servings a day) and legumes (2 servings a day).

  • TALK TO YOUR DOCTOR!!!

    Why do people insist on asking major health questions here? We are NOT doctors, nor can anyone diagnose you over a computer screen. GO TO YOUR DOCTOR!

  • O.k. asshole! It was just a question. It's not like she said she was having a heart attack and looking here for advice! What kinds of health questions would be appropriate? I stubbed my toe?

  • Far more suitable than, "I feel like I'm going to die when I got outside, so what's wrong with me?"

  • You ARE an asshole. Because of this fabulous economy I have no health insurance and I don't have the money to pay for a visit unless it's an emergency. Thought one of the helpful mothers on here might ease my mind by saying it's normal. Would you like to send me a check to cover the expense? Yeah.... didn't think so!

  • i almost passed out today it was 90 and i cant stand the heat it might be normal it might not be it could be alot of things but if you really feel the need and its something serious id talk to your doc otherwise what i do in the summers is bring a glass with like mayb 3 or 4 ice cubes in it and ice water so you could stay cool and get one of those minnie fans it really helps me but i also have alot of diseases like diabeties and among other conditions . so if you feel its serious go to the doc and make an appointment but good luck to you try to beat the heat i kno its not easy but do the best you can ok
