I have noticed that since this heat wave started (I live in Central Illinois), that I have been feeling more tired, sluggish and general worn-out feeling. I also have been getting headaches and sinus aches. I'm taking all the necessary precautions (I stay indoors in an air conditioned environment, drink lots of fluids-but perhaps not enough, taking it easy and not overexerting myself, etc).
Is this heat wave making anyone else feel lousy, too? I sometimes wonder if I'm really sensitive to barometric pressure, too.

I am in Minnesota and the other day when the temp was 100's (but felt like 120 according to weather.com) I was feeling the same way. I didn't want to get out of bed, just wanted to sleep...came home from work and just lounged around. Couldn't get the motivation for anything. Today, temp is in the 80's and I feel better. Just trying to keep hydrated! Hope it cools down for you guys soon! And hope you feel better!

Diagnosed with Celiac Disease November 2009
2011:
Anemia is gone for the first time in my life, Yay!
Teeth are cleaner according to my dentist (interesting, eh???)
Eyesight has improved for the first time in my life (another interesting thing!)

**My advice to the newly diagnosed** HANG IN THERE!! It gets better and is so worth the seemly long road to getting better. Just be happy you can make yourself healthy with a diet change, and not have to take pills for the rest of your life. :D

We were whining that we haven't got any summer yet. And then I saw the news about the heat wave. I think I'll just put a sweater on and get over it. That looks too hot for me. But would one nice day be too much to ask for. For the last 6 weeks we haven't had anything over 20c and it has rained everyday. I keep expecting to see the leaves change colour.

We have been SO lucky here this year! My ideal temperature is about 60F and lots of rain. We have had some days in the 80s but basically it has been mainly in the 70s. Absolutely lovely and green. So sorry to hear of the atrocious heatwaves! That would do me in. I have never liked heat and am more intolerant with fibromyalgia. I have had heat exhaustion a few times in Italy - not nice.

My 15 yr old spent last week in Canada canoeing. They had one day that might have been 80. Wore sweat shirts in the a.m.s
This week & next he is working at a day camp in 95-100 F . With lacrosse games some evenings.

I think of him & realize I'm fine. :rolleyes:

Sweltering heat has moved into my area, too (south central Pennsylvania). It's still 90° or so and humid at 9 p.m. with an excessive heat warning again tomorrow. I'm very thankful to have A/C so I can't complain too much. Although I'd like to see green grass again. We've had no rain and my lawn is brown and crunchy and hasn't been mowed since June 23.

It's wiping me out too! Our air conditioner is struggling and not cooling the room very well. I keep getting very dizzy and weak. I don't want to eat.
It was up to 103* yesterday with a dew point of 80*. I can't breathe if I go outside.
Just lolling around and hoping to make through.. :(

We've already hit 100° with a heat index of 112° and it's not even the hottest time of the day yet. My house is a comfortable 78°. I think I'll have a nap. :D

sounds like I'm not the only one. I went to volunteer today but after I got out of my car I felt kind of weak and lightheaded. The grass is getting pretty yellow here. It's not a drought yet in Champaign, Illinois (east central Illinois) but if it continues to not rain, I'm afraid it will be. The last really bad drought we had was in the summer of 1988.
I guess the key thing is to drink lots of fluids, even if you don't feel thirsty. Apparently, you can still be dehydrated and/or experience heat exhaustion if you're not thirsty.
It's been in the high 90s today (yesterday hit 102, yuck) with a much higher heat index. I just don't have much desire to go much of anywhere when it's so hot outside. I'm wondering if heat waves affect Celiacs worse than other people.

I think it would be better said that it effects those who have medical issues over those who don't.

Here in the PNW we have escaped the heat so far. It did feel warm today because it was in the 70's and it's supposed to hit 80 tomorrow. I have lived in places where it gets a lot hotter but here 80 can feel uncomfortable because so few places have AC. I've already filled our Chillows (hope they work) and have planned to go to Costco and Target tomorrow. Wouldn't be necessary but I forgot a couple of things when I went to Winco yesterday and also drove all over the place this past week and need gas. Yes, I could have gotten it yesterday because there is a Costco next door to Winco but this is one way we can get out of the house and take advantage of other people's (and our van's) AC for a couple of hour.

Costco is a good place to kill some time. Hub & I have a "date" to go this morning. Sad... :unsure: I need to get 2 things & hub will look at everything and we will be there an hour.

Hope your daughter's back is getting better. Sounds like she has lucked out on the weather.

I love to go into the dairy and produce rooms. Soooo nice and cool! We had a nice surprise today too! Target now has their fresh grocery. We saved a lot of money but for some reason the gluten-free chocolate chip cookie mix (Betty Crocker) was on clearance. As were some pecans. Daughter wants me to bake something now but I said I wouldn't until it cools off. I do plan to make her a yellow cake for her birthday on the 27th. If it is hot I will just bite the bullet and do it. I don't bake for her very often any more. When she was first diagnosed I was baking nearly every night. But very little of it came out well.
