Melach Posted December 11, 2004 Report Share Posted December 11, 2004 Hi, my name is Ayelet and I'm 34 years old. I just happened upon this site a few days ago while looking up advice/information on dysautonomia. I developed pots almost 5 years ago while pregnant with my daughter. I live in northern Israel right on the mediterranean, and am a lawyer. I like to say that the pots changed my lifestyle but not my life. It is pretty cyclical; each month, week, day, is different, but right now seems to be one of those rough spots. One thing that keeps worsening my symptoms is heat which is what I was originally looking up info about. It's not hot out in the winter, yet everytime I go outdoors in any heat (even if it's lying down by the pool) I feel horrible. Last week we had some particularly warm weather, and I have no idea how I was able to get through it.Anyway, I first off want to tell you who I am and that I was happily surprised to find this forum and wish I had found it sooner. Secondly, even though next week's forecast is much cooler, do any of you have any suggestions for dealing with heat? My doctors tell me the only solution is to avoid the outdoors, which I hate to do, but often have to in the summer. I have to go eat lunch, but I appreciate anything you have to say. Pardon any english mistakes; I consider myself fluent, but sometimes I'll write something completely incoherent.All the best,Ayelet Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
