Heat Survival & 'Cooling Shock' With Fibromyalgia & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Heat Survival & 'Cooling Shock' With Fibromyalgia & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: Heat waves are awful for many of us with fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome, because our body's homeostasis (regulation system) generally doesn't work well. We heat up too much, and we can't cool down. I've written frequently about our need to cool our bodies, but I recently learned that I'd overlooked one aspect of it - when you're really hot, being too aggressive about cooling off can cause its own set of problems!
