Heat intolerance can have various causes, ranging in severity from 'minor' to 'very serious'. Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.
Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms. In order to diagnose heat intolerance, we could:
|Epstein-Barr Virus||3%||Ruled out|
|Multiple Sclerosis||1%||Ruled out|
How does hot weather affect you in general?
Possible responses:→ I can't take the heat well
→ It makes little difference / I'm fine / don't know
→ I enjoy hot weather
Damaged nerve fibers have a strongly diminished tolerance for heat. Increases as little as 0.1 degrees centigrade can decrease conduction or cause blockage, which will result in the appearance of symptoms.
