i was just wondering if any of you have had a similar experience and how you cope. other than for hypothyroidism, i try to avoid taking conventional medications, when i go to doctor it is for a diagnosis and i decide what will be done and i usually do nothing unless i need antibiotic for stubborn infection or something obvious. when i was young, the heat and humidity did not bother me. other people would be complaining but it just did not bother me. i am medium dark skinned caucasian. in my mid thirties, i had a heart attack due to overexertion on the of the hottest and most humid days of the year. that was over a decade ago, but ever since then the heat and humidity drain me so i feel absolutely useless. my questions is why exactly is this. the dr said my heart had healed really well. so why does heart problems make you so much more vulnerable to heat and humidity and if anyone else has similar situation, do you have any special ways to cope or is there a way to overcome this and get back to the way when i was young. does age also contribute to this if heat did not bother you when you were young. probably a dumb post, but it just seems to me if the heart healed well, i should feel like a used to except for a little age difference. thanks in advance.
