Does anyone feel like they are going to pass out during or after showering? I don’t take very hot showers for reference. I’m also always really hot after.

      Yes. Have you looked into POTS?

      Stool/folding chair may allow you to introduce a little more heat to your water if you miss it. Can also try having a bottle of water and a small snack (fruit, granola, a bar, cut veggies, maybe something a little less healthy if that’s all you could tolerate to eat in the moment) to keep you better hydrated & energized before you’re in. Never hurts. Hope this helps! 💝💝💝 Happy healing

      Hey, yes! I skip the days that I feel too weak to make it to the shower bc I know I’ll probably pass out by the time I get in. I was stubborn about sacrificing my hot water 😭I commend you. What did work for me is investing in a small stool or fold out chair!!! Allows you to sit while you attempt to bathe and use 60 seconds of standing up toward the end if you please for a more thorough wash & rinse!

      I have passed out in the shower on more than one occasion and these days, a shower is an all day event with the amount of recovery time I need afterwards 😅

      That used to happen to me all the time when I had low blood pressure. I would definitely tell your dr about that. You could get seriously hurt if you pass out in the shower or getting out of the shower.

      Yes! I avoid showering bc of it and usually can’t leave the house (and can barely leave bed) for hours after I shower
