Re: Question about body temperature

From: Jeanne


Yes. I have heat as a trigger. When I was in my 20's I nearly passed out from a sauna. In my 30's and 40's I never did well in hot weather - rash from sun on occasion (one doc thought it was Lupus but it wasn't). Now it's hot flashes. Also, when I feel a VV episode coming on I also get hot and my heart races (but not too much - I've worn a monitor on a couple of occasions.)

This web site is not a substitute for a thorough medical evaluation and diagnosis of your vaso-vagal type symptoms.  Medical treatment and diagnosis is the only acceptable initial response to these serious symptoms since they might present from any number of life threatening and treatable illnesses. It is for you and your physician to rule out more serious illnesses; Please don't use this online forum as an alternative to getting responsible medical attention and being under the care of a physician for the duration of any unknown, suspected or dangerous vaso-vagal syndrome symptoms.
