Gough: I had a friend who would get this, she'd get hives when we were out walking and it was below 40...below. And that was -40 C, so there.

HelloImNotHome: I get disabled parking in the winter, as it starts giving me problems when the temp reaches 50F. I also have reactions in warmer weather if I sweat and there is a breeze from the evaporation on my skin.

I only play a doctor on Fark but I have to ask, these symptoms were diagnosed as an allergy? And not some sort of blood flow or hypothalmus issue?

Infobahn: I have stopped going to Mayo Scottsdale as they are a bunch of overhyped hacks.

I am a Phoenix native that lived in Minnesota for 10 years, and Northern Idaho for 5. I taunt anyone who wears a sweater when it is in the 60s here. Openly. Most of the complaints come from old people that lived elsewhere and now are snowbirds here, and keep their heat at 85*.

So, no Carry Me Back to Mayo?

/Is it wrong to wander about in shorts and t-shirt in 29f degree temperatures...

Spot the Canadian.

If there's no wind, it's not bad.
