Does heat make VV worse ?

From: Gina


Well IM happy to say I finally found a Dr. that wasable to diagnose me with VV after living with symptoms for almost 5 yrs . Im on Toprol XL and xanax.. My EP Dr also wants me to take Zoloft but Im hesitant. We live in Arizona and this summer has been so bad . I constantly feel like Im on a roller coaster and my legs are giving out. I went to Calif for 5 days and was surprised at how great I felt. I think it was the lower temps.. I also have to up my salt intake during the summer . DOes anyone else experience more episodes after being in the heat ?
