Those who are living with chronic illnesses know just what an impact the weather can have on how you feel. While the warmer weather might be beneficial for those dealing with inflammation-related issues like arthritis, having a chronic illness in general can make you more sensitive to extreme heat (not to mention thanks to the medication that you might be taking). Certain chronic illnesses such as POTS can also cause heat intolerance, meaning that heat can make symptoms worse. If you're feeling especially uncomfortable, these tips can help to make the next heat wave a little more manageable.
