We are having a heat wave in California, its not the first of the summer but it seems to be really getting to me. Lately in the morning I wake up hungry but have to wait an hour after taking my hypothyroid medicine and then I cook something nice and when I start to eat I get nausated and cant eat much of it. Then stomach cramps come and lots of burping and then maybe I will have a movement but Im not feeling very well during the whole time. This continues through lunch and then when I get to work at 3 pm I am able to eat more since I work in at environment thats very cold comparitively to out door temperatures. In doors at work its usually 65 F./18 C outside it has been at least today 106 F/ 41 C and has lately ranged between upper 90's and lower 100's. Also my parents don't use there air conditioner to save money so we use a swamp cooler, it helps but not enough. I also work swing shift from 3pm to 11:30pm 3 days a week and have trouble sleeping in because of the heat. I have been noticing stomach problems like this for a week and a half. I have decided to drop the avoids and become much more complient since Im a nonnie, but is there anything else I can do? I would like to hear some ideas if you have any. Just for informational purposes I take 100 mcg levoxel and Jasmine birth control pills for possible polycystic ovarian syndrome, heavy irregular cycles, and because I dont want to get pregnant yet. Thanks in advance.

Most of my life I've been queasy in high summer in the 1970's, I was home from work for most of a week because of a wicked heat wave making me nauseous & no a/c at work (99 degrees outside, 99 degrees inside!) Learning to deliberately consume more salt & water has made a huge difference under those circumstances. But I don't mind the loss of appetite making me lose a little weight! :)

Well I dont mind losing weight although I probable dont need to since im in the healthy BMI range for my height but I cant help but think that I shoud be eating more. I will try to consume more salt and water tomarrow and see if that helps.

My pre-BTD perscription for less nausea in high-nineties weather was the littlest size bag of chips - corn, potato, didn't matter, it was the salt I was after) and a soda or water. Haven't got a new pat formula, yet. Now it's selzer, club soda or mineral water & ???? something salty, haven't had to make that decision yet. Suddenly, wheat-free soy sauce doesn't seem to be the answer. Fooey.

Well on my boyfriends advice I tried more water and some salt added with lemon for today. No such luck I felt good in the early morning, but later in the morning it warmed up and the nausia and stomach cramps came back like yesterday. It also came back after dinner, after being in 65 degree airconditioning for several hours, which makes me think that every time I eat a meal afterwards my body says ok time to get rid of some old stuff to make room for new stuff and thats when I have cramping, nausia, and increasing numbers of small bowel movements. Sorry if its too much info, but Im trying to figure out whats up. I just recently started taking a one a day vitamin from Super Nutrition two weeks ago so I decided not to take it today and see what happens. If im better tomarrow then I will switch to their regular vitamins which have less of everything per pill. I also started the soaked whole flax seeds in water and some molassas to make it go down easier, I figure I should do that for a while and see if there is any improvement. I have to talk to my doctor soon anyway so maybe I should bring this up. Any more suggestions on what to do before I have to get my doctor involved.
