I can't stand being hot or sweating, so yes. I get extremely anxious and irritable.

Yes, it can with mine, one of my main fears even though it has never happened is fainting, I think I will often and when I get hotter it obviously leads to anxiety and getting more stressed and irratable as I can't stand the heat, basically leading to not feeling much air to breath and leading to more anxiety.

I would say yes. This happened today. It was so warm and I went out and i felt even worse because it was so warm and just like zlong said with the fainting. I have fainted once before because I was too warm and there were people there when I fainted. I am afraid to faint because of this. Heat makes me ill. I feel sick in heat and also right headed which are things I feel as well with anxiety so all this could cause me to faint again and this time, in a more public place which is hard.

I guess kind of. As stupid as this may sound, I really wouldn't want to end up sweating if I stay outside for a while in the sun, especially if there's other people around. Plus I can't stand being anywhere where there's direct sunlight if I'm around people too, but that's a different story. It's kind of hot where I am now and the heat mixed with a few other things that's making my day a little off is making me all grumpy and upset.
