    Unable to stand sun heat

    I am over 70 years old. My heart beat will increase to 130 and my skin will feel very warm just for exposing to sun heat for 10 minutes. The fast HB will make me very tired, I have to lie down to rest and the warm skin will take at least six hours to cold time even in air conditioned house. I had consulted many cardiologists and family doctors and none offered any solution. I asked a cardiologist that do I heart failure, he said no. My BP average 115/70, HB 85. Beta Blocker makes my BP too low to pass out twice. Calcium channel blocker makes my HB to weak that I feel no blood going to my brain. So I am not on any medicine. I had two angiograms, both were okay. My cholesterol, HDL, LDL, triglycerides and glucose are all within guideline, my weight is standard. Any guess?

    This is common with patients who take heart medicine. Talk to your doctor and don't stay out in the sun or exert yourself in the sun.
