Heat Exhaustion
« on: Mon, 14 June 2021, 10:39:22 »
Has anyone else experienced a marked decrease in the ability to tolerate heat for long periods after a certain age?

Over the weekend, I attended an all day event in ~90-95 F heat, and, around mid afternoon, I began feeling extremely sluggish despite drinking lots of water and powerade. Eating and resting helped a bit, but not a ton.

A couple years ago, I was training for a long bike ride (I think that day's ride was 65 or 70 miles), and I had to have a nurse friend pick me up and start an IV on me, despite drinking tons of gatorade and snacking. I felt nauseated for a couple hours after being picked up as well.

Prior to my 30s, I don't remember ever having any issues with heat as long as I kept drinking fluids.
Maybe they're waiting for gasmasks and latex to get sexy again.

Yes, just like the cold and everything else.

But, as my grandfather always used to say: "It's better than the alternative."

Yes, I remember.

It all started on the day I was born.

I never liked heat, hot days. Even when I was a kid.
However yes - I do remember that being a kid, I did not care that much about temperature outside.
There is also one thing I noticed - when I was a kid, in 80s-90s - weather was different - back then 20-25C was kinda max during summer and it was that hot like its now.
Now, living in Scotland, where summers get hot like 25-30C for a week or two, I cant freaking stand temperature higher than 17C.
Even my wife says that nowadays 20C is like 30C 20 years ago:)

Living in Texas past few years I have gotten used to the heat. But now I cant take cold weather which I never had a problem with, when I lived up north.
