This has been an odd summer. Last year we had around six weeks of hot weather (not ideal as I had just had OHS). This year it had come in a number of 4 - 5 day spikes. Yesterday got distinctly warm (wish buses had air con) mid afternoon and we have 31, 30 and 28 forecast for today and the next few days.
As per usual a few hints. Hot weather dilates the blood vessels so combined with medication you may experience hypotension. Try and about the heat of the day and exercise early and late. It is better not to exercise for a day or two than push things in the heat. Unless on a fluid restriction make sure you keep well hydrated. I have found I need to drink quite a bit more water as I lose a lot through perspiration. This has definitely increased since my heart issues started! ☹️
If you become unwell check.with 111 or dial 999. Remember heart issues are serious so even if things are OK it is not time wasting as they prefer to check people out than dealing with a full blown emergency!
Any enjoy the bank holiday and stay safe! 🌞
