I included this in a post from the original person who posted on the issue. In case you didn't see it I wanted to post in direct response to you: I really appreciated Rich Weil's response. dilation of blood vessels . . . interesting . . and something I would have never of thought of. Is there a cure for this or is it something we have to live with for our lifetime? I oftentimes feel the veins in my neck have a lot of pressure while working out or outside in the sun - does that have any relation to the dilation of my blood vessels?View Thread
thank you so much for posting this. I have the same issue and don't know what is going on. I just finished a relay race with a group of friends. i struggled through my leg because I felt like I was overheating. None of my other friends had any issues. Also, after 4 miiles of running in the sun I was hardly sweating at the end and everyone else was dripping with sweat after their leg. Like you, my face always turns bright red. I easily overheat. I would call it "sun poisoning" because I can't be out in the heat or I get overheated, headaches, sometimes nausea. People always tell me to drink more water because i'm most likely dehydrated. When I'm in the sun I make a point of drinking water all the time, even when I'm not thirsty. so that is not the issue.
