    The weather has been very hot and humid where I live and I thought my fatigue was bad before, now it is really bad and I wonder if it is the temperature extremes.  Does the hot weather affect you?  If so, how?

    In Manresa (50km NW of Barcelona) it stays in the 90s through most of July and August (the price we pay for lovely sunny winters), but it doesn’t have any affect on my main symptom, RLS.

    Thank you for this post. I’m glad to know I’m not alone. Fatigue is my worst symptom and YES, the heat is a challenge. If I’m in temperatures between 65-75 it’s like a kettle on the stove turned on low. The heat will wear me down and drain me if my energy at a slower pace. 75-90 and the heats turned up to medium. Anything above 90 and I feel like a sink full of water that someone’s pulled the plug and I’m on fast drain. I can literally feel the energy being sucked from my body in a matter of minutes. Here’s an example of medium heat. The temperature cooled down to mid-seventies and I ate dinner on back patio then played cards. I was outside about 20-30 minutes when I realized I couldn’t count or add 2+2 while trying to keep score. My mind was blank. When it’s high 80’s or hotter, my boss let’s me work from home. I’m in the basement where it’s 65. I love being outside and have always loved the heat. This is my first summer having to deal with these challenges. It’s killing me to not get outside. But on the flip side, I love to downhill ski in the winter. We went several times last winter and I did just fine.

    Hi Tracy. I was thinking my pd was progressing but perhaps it is the temp. Extremes.   You describe it very well.  Here in NY, it has been the hottest July in years with many days over 90 plus high humidity.  I look forward to crisp fall days in the 60s.  Heck, I will take 70s 😀
