Dry heaving, rashes and other hot weather woes

Does anyone else just dread summer due to the onslaught of symptoms?
Is it from the medications reactions or is it the disease itself? Currently I am taking Cimzia, Methotrexate, Sertraline, Atenelol, and Hydrochlothiazide.

My joints swell painfully, I dry heave every morning and I get painful itchy rashes. My mouth is terribly dry. I also flare in the anal/rectal area as well. This happens whenever the temperature rises above 80 degrees Fahrenheit and I am my own weather predictor.

I stay out of the sun, wear Chrynobl grade sunblock and stay in air conditioning.

Here's something that was posted in 2013. The jest of it all is that those of us with IBD are more sensitive to heat. I remember that before my husband and I had air conditioning in our house I'd always get heat rashes in the summer especially when it was super hot. But, now that we have AC I don't get them anymore.

Sorry to hear you are suffering. We recently had a mini heatwave and I saw this on social media and found it very interesting.

It could be due to the immune system having to work harder to deal with the onslaught of allergies at this time of year. Also take into consideration insect bites. The heat makes it worse. Definitely use airconditioning, and dehumidifiers are of help too. Reducing humidity in the home will reduce the level of allergens and also mold.

Thank you for posting this; we have been having a heat wave where I live and I am also experienced many more symptoms than usual. It's nice to know I'm not alone.
