Quick history, BC diagnosed last July. Lumpectomy, radiation, and on Anastrazole. Last year starting in late Apr/early May, I started having heat intolerance. Have NEVER had that before in my life, I am a sun bunny, love the heat. Then we found the cancer. I ALWAYS wondered if the heat intolerance was my body telling me something was wrong. This year, no problem with heat intolerance all spring and summer up until yesterday. And I am in Cali so LOTS of hot days here. I have been riding my horse and having a great summer, finally starting to feel normal again.
Fast forward to yesterday, and I did my normal ride, but really felt like passing out after. Today, was starting to feel dizzy, woozy before I even got on. Vomited 2x while on (and only on 15 min, mostly walking). Had to have hubby and daughter come get me. This is EXACTLY like what I had last year. By the time I get horse groomed and tacked up ready to go, I was feeling so bad some days I could not even get on. Today I forced myself. But this is exactly the same as it was last year. And today was not even nearly as hot as some of the days I have ridden in.
I haven't changed anything, diet, meds, am hydrated. Should I be worried? Has anyone heard about heat intolerance as a symptom of cancer? My wonderful (not) PC blew me off and said "its menopause". NO its not that was done years ago. I asked every doc I saw and no one could explain it. Now its happening again and I am scared they will just blow me off and what if it really is a symptom?
Has anyone here experienced heat intolerance when they had cancer?
thanks for listening
