Okay, this is strange but I really need help and want to get this resolved. For about the past 2 years I feel sick immediatly after walking outside into warm/humid/hot air. I feel like someone would if their blood sugar was droping but the problem is - as soon as I walk indoors - I am fine. It is sooo sudden and so strong I am worried. It doesn't take but 15 seconds of walking out the door and I feel sick, dizzy, lightheaded, like I need to eat something. If I turn around and walk back indoors- I'm fine.

I live in PA so in the winter - this doesn't happen. It happened to be bad today & it isn't even what I'd consider "hot" out.

Anyone with suggestions? I can't find anything on the internet besides symptoms of sensitivity to long heat exposure...nothing about instant suffering as soon as outdoors.

Thanks in advance!!

  • I get the same exact thing. It feels like my body is being attacked when I feel hot. Using my heart monitor watch today... I found out I now have proof of a physical reaction. Within 4 minutes I had the car air condition on, I got cold... so I turned it off and waited until I got hot. As soon as I felt hot my HR went from 78 in the cold to 88 in the hot. The only thing I can find that happens with is hyperthyroidsim. I don't have a diagnosis for anything that has that symptom though. I've got hypoglycemia, and its definitely not from that... The heat however makes me feel like I'm going to have a hypoglycemic attack against my will.

  • heat intolerance can be suggestive of many endocrine disorders like adrenal insufficiency or addisons disease or even a thyroid problem... talk to your doctor about having some tests done or seeing an endocrinologist.

  • Heat allergy or barometric pressure allergy is very real. It means that your nervous system has a glitch and it chooses to react to the temperature fluctuation as a threat. Find a NAET specialists, it only takes one treatment and 25 hours to get rid off it permanently- some people don't reverse it the first time, but I personally have conquered all my allergies with NAET at the first treatment.Take care, look into NAET.Best,Eatafruit78.

  • Hello.There is a treatment that can possibly take away the intolerance to heat. The treatment is alternative treatment, it goes by the name of NAET. There is a website explaining the treatment, the therapists, and how to locate a NAET therapists. NAET can only be provided by Licensed Acupuncturists. They can explain you how it works and tell you how many treatments you may need. It will take a time before you can get treated for heat. Particularly, you need to wait until winter time, so that there is no heat and that you can be 'desensitized' to heat. NAET treats external triggers as if it was a food allergy. The practitioner performs acupressure and ask the patient to avoid contact with the cause of the sickness for 24 hours.This does not sound like sound medical treatment, but it works on most people. Deep down, there is an emotional connection to all sicknesses. Surprise! We all deny it! But it is the true and I am just saving you some time. All sicknesses are emotional. But you are young and you have not lived long enough to figure out the root of the problem. Meditation can help you very much. Healing is a journey- a beautiful journey.You can also try Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Whatever you do, do not go for a Psychiatrist, if it isn't that you are already taking meds for bipolar.Psychiatric meds will always make people over heat and get sick.I am very hopeful that this little symptom of feeling sick with heat will open a window to a whole new revolution in your soul.Happy Healing! You are unique! You are a beautiful person!Peace,Eat-a-fruit-78

Anyone with the above symptoms needs to have POTS (postural orthostatic tachycardia) syndrome ruled out. POTS attacks are commonly triggered by heat.. (and other things like standing). POTS is caused by an issue with the autonomic nervous system. http://www.dinet.org/symptoms.htm
