This Just Isn't Funny!!

I think there is something wrong. And I should probably go see a doctor, but I don't know what kind of doctor to go to for this.

I think I'm allergic to shopping!!! :-(

I know ladies! Pick up your jaws; stop yelling at your computer screens.

But seriously...

Whenever I walk into a mall, target and sometimes even smaller little stores (although not as often), I break into cold sweats. It can be freezing cold in the place and my skin will be cool to the touch, but I'll be just covered in sweat. I can be wearing a tank top, shorts and flip flops with my hair up and away from me and I still look like I've stepped out of a sauna.

I don't get it. It happens the moment I walk in. It usually goes away anywhere between 30 min - 1 hour.

It's very embarrassing! I went to the mall here today and you would have thought their AC was broken the way I looked! I went to the same mall the other day with a girl from work, and the same thing happened.

I went shopping last weekend with a friend and it happened. It happened while I was in Chicago, it happened while I was in Phoenix.

It happens all the time in malls and then sometimes in Target's, Wal-Mart’s, and other stores.

So the only thing I have come up with is that I'm allergic to shopping...which would be a total tragedy!

I drink 1-3 liters of water a day so it shouldn't be anything with dehydration (although I'm not sure why shopping would trigger that). There is no over exertion. I just casually walk through; occasionally stop to look at something. That's it!

Geez...I'm going to have to start wearing freaking sweat bands and a towel to shop in!

are you nervous around crowds? Sounds almost like a mild panic attack

Not Allergic, just having a mini orgasim at the thought of shopping!

Caltechgirl - possibly. I used to have panic attacks when I was younger. But they involved a lot of light headedness, weakness, shortness of breath and heart racing. I'll have to watch if it's around crowds or not.

Machelle - I like that answer!! So if I went to Mall of America, would I have a mega orgasm?
