Anxiety and hot summer weather

I looked it up and learned that one of the symptoms that can be incredibly distressing is feeling hot from anxiety. Anxiety has the potential to drastically raise your body heat, almost as though you're sick, and depending on where you are, that rise in body heat can be significantly uncomfortable and cause a lot of frustration and misery.

We are having a heat wave here currently and I truly feel like I'm melting. Plus my anxiety is off the charts.

Does hot weather make you feel this way?

Exactly it does! Every time when i go outside, because of temperature i feel I am breathless and that I am going to faint. I more prefered when it was winter and you had fresh air when you were outside, but now, it is really annoying...

I hate hot weather, have for many years. I'll take a cool autumn day anytime over a 90 degree F day in July/August. Dealing with consecutive very hot days could certainly cause anxiety, if you don't like that kind of weather and you don't know when it's going to break or rain.

I actually love hot whether, I feel relaxed almost like it's the whether I was intended to be in. I don't know why or how but I enjoy it. For example I sometimes wear jumpers/ coats in 40°C whether and it makes me feel good.
