Does hot weather make you nauseous?

United States
July 20, 2009 2:13am CST
For the past week, it has gotten to over a 100 degrees everyday, I have been coping well with it until tonight, I feel very nauseous and cannot keep anything down, even water makes me vomit . It is very irritating and I just feel like crap . There is no central air, just one ac in living room but my bedroom is far away from it so it can't cool my room, all i have is a fan. How do you like hot weather? What do you do to cope with it?

yes Hot weather makes me very sick to my Tummy.I do not deal well in the heat at all I am usually right in from of an AC or in a cool bath..or I even put ICE in my bed with a sheet over top and lay on it lol if you are vomiting even from water you might want to go see a doctor and make sure you dont have heat stroke

Im drinking some watered down diet soda, its settling better in my stomach because of the carbonation. Once i feel totally better, then I'm going to drink lots of water. I can't afford to go to the doctor because I don't have health insurance

I am glad you found something that is settling better,you should also try a cool bath and see if that helps any

I too get very nautious, and I also get dizzy in the summertime because the heat is too much for me to bear! We don't have an AC right now, so my apartment has been REALLY hot. I haven't felt sick YET this year because we have only had a few nice days, the rest of them were rainy. I can't win either way!

hiya, well hot weather doesn't really exist here. when travelling though i've found the best thing is to go out early and then not to go out until latish afternoon - and drink lots of fluids - if you're not eating then stick a bit of sugar and salt in what you're drinking.

Anything above 85 degrees makes me ill. It doesn't make me nauseous, but I can't function, it makes me extremely fatigued to the point where I can't do anything. The only way I can cope with it is by keeping all doors and windows closed, most of the lights off too as the house gets considerably hotter when they are on. I also frequently go in and wet my head in cold water. We have the AC in our living room as well then I have a fan in the dinning room to help pull the cool air through the house but it doesn't always work. Yesterday was 80 with a bit of a breeze and I had to force myself to go out and work at the farm. I took frequent breaks and even wet my head a couple of times with the hose. I worked in the shade whenever possible and thank god after I wet my head with the hose I stayed pretty cool and actually enjoyed it, but the initial forcing myself to go was the kicker of course. I made sure to get out before it got too hot otherwise I knew for certain I'd be in the house all day again. Next week it's supposed to be up in the 90's I'm not looking forward to it at all. Even when I was a teenager I would sleep during the hottest hours of the day, I don't know why that's always been my bodies way of coping with the heat. I did just find this article it's more about the elderly and disabled, but offers good tips and advice on how to cope with the heat. Beings that you can't even keep water down, you might want to make yourself a doctors appointment, because you can't afford to get dehydrated in 100 degree weather OUCH! Here's the link for the article I mentioned. http://www.caregiver.org/caregiver/jsp/content_node.jsp?nodeid=871

I tried something different and am drinking watered down Diet Squirt, the carbonation is really helping to settle my stomach and so far, it is all staying down. Thank you so much for the article btw too, its helpful and I might just look and see how much a room air conditioner costs, my room feels like an oven early in the morning, it will be like 80 outside but will be much higher in my room, but hopefully I can maybe get a ac for my room.

Yes it does, as a matter of fact I have even stood in front of the freezer woth the door open and a fan blowing on me it's been so hot. When I get in my car I turn the ac on and go back inside for 10min's when I'm driving around I have very cold water with me and a cool rag. I eat lite and ware light colored clother. I think these things help....And dont forget it's frozen coffee season not HOT, this will make a real diff. Have a great day.

Oh I never drink hot coffee, I sometimes drink hot cider in the winter. And oh I know about the freezer, hehe but we have a large refrigerator, and I'm short so to get a full effect of the freezer, I stand on a step stool then my head and chest get cool, oh it would be great to have a walk in freezer though.

This is my absolute favorite weather. I love the hot humid days of summer. We get so little of it up where I live as it is, so I try to get out in it every chance I get. I guess I sometimes tend to over do it though. Most times I enjoy it so much I'm too dumb to know enough to get out of it once in a while.

Do you sunburn easy? I'm smart this summer and wear sunscreen, but last year I went to a baseball game and didn't even think about it, I ended up looking like a lobster with an A's hat on

Yes,the place I am living is summer now,the weather is precisely hot ,I am also very uncomfortable and nauseous,but we know that spring,summer,fall,winteris the four seasons of a year,so cold and hot are the nature rule which we can't violate ! Therefore,we do not be agitated,the nature is comfortable and the weather is cool if our mood are calm down!

I know what you mean, I can't wait until fall, there is nothing better than a cool fall, I used to live about 30 minutes from here and it was more towards the mountains so it would get kind of cold during fall, but it was worth it because the leaves would change into really vivid colors.

Same with me. I usually get sick every summer, but this year we have only have a few nice days out. Most of the days have been VERY very rainy, so I haven't even had the chance to get sick! I guess that is a good thing?

Goodness, I have issues myself with the central California valley - the coastal areas are more moderate but unfortunately the cost of living is a lot higher, and so presently I don't live there. Oh, Carmichael? Oh, you won't like it here in Sacramento ... Maybe Seattle Washington would be more to your liking? c

Carmichael is a part of Sacramento, I just get so accustomed to putting Carmichael as my city that I didn't even think to say Sacramento when I joined :P But you know how its been hot, I know its been hotter in the past years but this summer just seems extra stuffy

Hi spicysweetie, it sounds like you could be dehydrated from the heat so keep forcing that water down. The heat here is the same as yours at the moment and I also just have fans, no AC at all. When it is this hot my advice to cope is stay out of the heat of the day if you can and go out later in the day. Drink plenty of water and avoid all sugary drinks which are dehydrating. Keep a spray bottle of water handy so you can spray hot areas, it always gets the back of my neck most. Hope you feel better soon.

A few summers ago I got very dehydrated an ended up fainting on a really hot day. It makes me nervous now whenever it is really hot out, because I don't want to faint again! I always keep at least one bottle of water with me during the summer. Most of the time I have a bottle of water and a bottle of juice, or pepsi, or something else with sugar in it to keep me feeling a bit more awake. I try to remember to freeze my water, too, so that it's REALLY cold all day!

It never really gets that hot in England but when it does after a few days of high 80's it makes me very tired and find energy hard to find.It can make me feel nauseous as well.I cannot imagine how I would cope with temperatures that high.we normally use a fan day and night to keep cool.

nope. actually from the country where i'm from which is in the tropics, i'm so used to hot weather. actually we only have two weathers here. sunny and rainy seasons. so when it's not raining, the weather could get around 30 degrees celsius. and the best part about it is that when it's raining, it's not so cold too. you don't need a thick leather jacket to survive. a sweatshirt would do. :-)

The heat can do that to you if you are no used to it. See, I live in California, and I have learned to get used to it. Now, when I went to Comic Con once, I was not prepared for how hot it got that day. It got so hot that I lost control of my bowels and I had to go to the restroom a lot. That was not fun. The heat effects people in different ways.

I like hot weather, but it isn't always good. My area has a dry heat so when it is hot it is much better. Humidity and heat can be absolutly horrible. When it is humid and hot I have trouble breathing. I also get dizzy. Thankfully it doesn't often make me feel nausiated. It has been over 100 here too and a bit humid, which is not normal for us. Try taking a shower more often, it seems to help for a little while, for me, or if you can afford it get one of those small air conditioners that go in a window. They are usually made just for small rooms. Try your best to drink water even if only sips, that is more important than anything. I hope you can find some relief from this heat!

Every time it's really hot over here I get nauseous and have migraines. What I do is drink lots of water and have cold showers.

I don't do hot weather well anymore so when it starts getting hot out, I turn on the CA and keep my backside in the apartment. When I have to go out it's hard on me b/c I overheat really easily. I'm forever stopping places and getting ice water to drink. [b]~~AT PEACE WITHIN~~ **STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS**[/b]
