Heat intolerance...

This will be my first full summer with chronic Lyme.

We are already experiencing 80 degree days - some days with a lot of humidity (which is not friendly to my body).

What are your experiences with summer heat and chronic Lyme?

I'm already having some problems! The summers here can get really, really hot - I'm usually not really bothered by the heat until it reaches over 100.

Right now 80 degrees is already getting to me.

Thanks... Blush

heat intolerance is a classic babesia symptom. are you treating babs already? i have noticed my heat intolerance has intensified significantly since starting mepron/azith.

I have been heat sensitive on and off. I have heard several lymies say they have that problem.

I had to stay in air conditioning during those times.... but not too cold either, because I never can take even cool temperatures.

It doesn't take much cold to be too cold for me, either.

My ND told me at my appointment on Tuesday that she wants to start treating me for babs. She indicated that she is seeing more Babs these days.

The supps that she added for Babs were not available at her office - I ordered them online yesterday.

babesia is also referred to as north american malaria - it is suspected that it could be passed via mosquitoes and ticks

These last two summers, my wife and I both had heat prostration troubles. Neither have ever had any troubles before.

Is this why I sweat at the drop of a hat? I'm always hot and have sweaty pits! I live in the super temperate Bay Area and can't take warm days.

Also, from early on I have become very weak after taking hot showers.

I wonder if that is a general symptom of Lyme or is Babs related?
