    That's a good question!
    I always try to avoid major heat as it is draining to me. I look forward to the others thoughts on this.

    Heat makes me nauseated, confused( major brain fog), dizzy and shaky. These symptoms take hours to go away, in a cool place. That is why, my hubby and I traded cars, because the AC in my car is out, it would cost $700 to get fixed, but since we have short summers here in NY, we just switched cars. I can't even drive the car, if it is very hot, because I get disoriented and dizzy, plus I have a hard time breathing.
    I don't know, if it is a Lupus thing, but I think it is. That is why I avoid getting to hot, when possible. I even get this way if the shower is to hot, so I have started to take warm showers.

    I may have been dealt a bad hand, but at least I'm still playing with a full deck. ( most of the time anyway).

    I have read of people with LUPUS who LOVE the relief of a HOT shower or bath while others hate it. I think you just have to go with what feels good to you. And maybe ask your doctor next time around.
