Is this normal? - August 23rd 2011, 05:21 PM

I'm visiting my mother for the holidays and we went camping, where it was humid and incredibly warm so I went home again after two days and a raging headache, because I am incredibly sensitive to sunlight and heat. I'm home now, it's 27 degrees celsius inside, even with a fan on full setting and 37 degrees celsius outside.

Everytime I go outside, I feel like I'm going to collapse after about three minutes. It's too hot and while everyone thinks that's great and walks around happily, all I want to do is leave and go somewhere cool. Even at home, inside, it makes me feel sluggish and depressed and seeing the thermostat made me cry because honestly, how on earth can it be so warm?

Is that normal? To get that depressed from heat and sun?

I don't know, it might also be because I feel obligated to visit my sister where she's camping for her birthday tomorrow and I just can't stand the heat. It's too warm and there's nowhere to hide and it just gives me headaches and I am so tired all the time.

Some people do feel depressed when they become too hot and get fed up. This can be because of several factors from heat such as dehydration, sunburn e.t.c there are lots of things.
I agree with the above user and think that it would be best to speak to your doctor about his as we are not professionals and cannot diagnose. We can only advise.
If you want to go and visit your sister tomorrow maybe wear a high factor sun cream, bring a lot of water and some coold food with you. Wear white clothes as this can help keep you cool and maybe find a tree or bring an unmrella to use as a shade or something. I know this helps me.
I hope that this helps.

xxxxxxx Take care xxxxxxx
