    Seriously, it's been sooo hot for two days now, and yeah I wish I could enjoy it, but I just can't. I only need to be outside for some 20 minutes, and I start feeling really nauseous and languid.... I can't stand direct sunlight, I hate sun bathing, for it only makes me nauseous very quickly. Even if I drink a lot it doesn't really help... Does anyone have this problem? Or am I the only one who likes to stay indoors or at least in the shadow?

    Could be a migraine or photophobia.

    Same problem here...

    I don't know the reason for it, but try and stay in the shade, use sun block, don't take on any strenous activity out in the sun, and drink lots of water. Keeping your salt levels up also helps if you are sweating a lot.

    Edit: why have I been negged for this?!

    Same here! I think it's because of the radical weather change. Some people take more time to get use to change, so their bodies respond differently. Make sure to drink a lot of water. On the contrary to what most people say, I found that eating smaller portions (and less rich foods) like 6 small portions a day instead of 3 normal meals, makes me feel less lethargic and feel less "icky".

    I usually get a migraine if I'm out in the sun for too long. Doesn't help that I have dark hair and pale skin.

    I usually get headaches after a day or couple of hours in the sun. I cannot open my eyes in the sun either; I have to squint

    I'm the same. I won't go out in the sun like it is today at all. The only reason I open the window is because I don't have a fan in every room of the house.
