Does anyone else get overheated more easily than those around you? …I at first thought it was related to my weight but a few other people I work with are heavier than I am and don’t seem to have these same issues. I work at a pizza place with 800+ degree ovens (Fahrenheit), AC that barely works, and recent high 90s temperatures.Obviously that would make most people sweaty but I feel like I have a stronger reaction to the heat. Today it was the worst it has been. I often get slightly blurred vision, feel light-headed, and get a headache (though I generally get a lot of headaches anyway). Today I also felt nauseous and had some stomach pain.I drink tons of water but it doesn’t seem to do much aside from make me not thirsty.My dad was working today and could tell I felt bad so he let me take a break in the walk-in fridge. I IMMEDIATELY felt better in the cool and felt pretty awful again after a few minutes in the heat.
Nausea and Vomiting
Update: it was definitely iron deficiency related 😭
I'll have to get more iron in my diet (cause I know my levels aren't low enough to take supplements), but I overheat quite easily as well. I'm just always more comfortable being cool or cold haha
