Tempature Control

I agree with the others I think you should consult your doctor. I go into the water classes to keep the weight off my joints. This pool is 85 degrees and if I do a slow class I get cold. I can go into the rehab pool where the water is 95 and I don’t get chilled but I feel like a wet cooked noodle after a class done in there which is usually 45 minutes long. Stretching, balance, range of motion all benefit. I come home and sleep for a few hours after class. I tried the hot tub which is kept at 104 degrees and after 4 or 5 minutes I started to tingle from head to toe and I knew it was not normal and I got out of the water immediately. I will not return. I am sensetive to warmer water in the shower also. Heat is not my friend but keeing moving in the other pools has kept my arthritis in check. You might want to try a hot tub in advance to see if you can tolerate it before you make the investment.:cool:
