Hot Bath/Shower

Feb 02, 2017 10:04 PM

I was diagnosed with Fibro in 2007 and Chronic Fatigue in 2009. I have noticed for the last four years that sometimes a hot bath or shower wipes me out and makes me so sick feeling. I know a hot bath can make you feel as if you are going to pass out if the temperature is to warm; however what I am experiencing is much more than just a few moments of weakness or dizziness. Does anyone else experience this issue? A hot bath helps with pain, but makes me feel so awful.

I can be completely wiped out from a shower or bath. To the point I have to lay down for quite some time. It's not always. Sometimes a hot bath is the only thing that helps. Inconvenient really.
