    Check your blood pressure. Also -poikilothermia- is the term. Your body below the level of injury takes on the heat of the surrounding temperature. And can't adjust it.

          Another great idea! I just ordered a $17 pulse-ox. Amazon has many brands that are all inexpensive and highly rated. It really feels like I'm not getting enough oxygen when the weak feeling hits (but trying to hyperventilate never helped), so I'll check my blood oxygen. It actually seems more likely than low BP.
          Bought this one on Amazon for $40.00 it does everything.

              Magnesium has been helping with this problem. a lot of times Im feeling exhausted from the heat, and then I faint. faint in the shower. iv been using magnesium oil, or spray. Im noticing I can sleep again. I am not as sensitive to the heat if I remember to take it. it was an an accidental discovery that magnesium affected my fainting. I never faint if I use it, but I started using it because of leg and arm cramps after I faint, and it stopped the fainting, and tachycardia, so I think the heat exhaustion might be connected to magnesium deficiency.
