Re: Sick after hot shower?
I have problems with hot showers too sometimes. What I've learned is that all that hot water seems to do 2 things: First, it can raise your blood pressure, pulse rate, and breathing rate which can make you feel anxious and dizzy. Second, hot water seems to hyperstimulate the immune system. It can bring about flu like feelings which make you feel sick, feverish, tired, and weak.
A lot of people can get ill from hot showers, baths, or hot tubs. The best thing to do if you must absolutely use really hot water is to never leave that tub that way. Always run the water cold for the last few minutes because it can help counter all those ill effects...it works for me.
