This may sound odd but has anyone had experiences where a hot tub has actually made you feel worse than you felt going in? There have been many times I have gone over to a friend of mines house. She can see I am in obvious pain, and throws a towel to me and tells me to go take a long bath in her jacuzzi. When I get in, it feels really nice and I can feel some muscles relaxing and unwinding, but after about 10 minutes I absolutely HAVE to get out. It gets hard to breathe, and everything that felt good in the beginning gets worse. I have experimented with and without jets on and that does not seem to make a difference. I get out of the tub all shaky and even though I dry off I am in a cold sweat and am exhausted after. This has ruined romantic nights in a motel with a jacuzzi as well. I think it might be the heat but when I am in my own tub in hot water I am fine. The only thing I can figure out is in my own tub the water only goes waist high on me whereas in a jacuzzi it is uo to my neck. I know I cant be the only one, so I thought I would ask for feedback. It is disappointing though as you feel like sitting in one and relaxing will help, but it only makes it worse for me.
