    No, do not take a hot shower before bed under any circumstances.

    I have a friend - she said her cousin took a hot shower before bed and when she woke up she had appendicitis as well as some second degree burns and vertigo.

    I suggest you don't take any chances, just play it safe and take a shower in the morning.

    I would talk to your doctor and see if it is OK for you.

    I have heard of people dying in the shower from the hot water causing the blood to get too thin and then cause heart problem.

    Again. I would ask your doctor if you have any reservation.

    I like a good warm/hot shower too and would never tale a cold one.

    Go ahead...take a hot shower! It will not only relax you, it will relax your mucsles, and it will help you fall asleep faster. Trust me...i take a cold shower in the moring to wake me up, and then at night i take a hot shower to put me to sleep.

    A hot shower be for bed will not harm you. Almost everyone takes a hot shower be for bed.

    Hot showers are safe anytime. Cold showers can shock your system if you are overheated and have been in the sun for a prolonged time.

    I have taken a hot shower before bedtime for years and it hasn't harmed me. I will turn 70 next month. I don't understand why anyone would consider a cold shower.

    ...There are no effects. You are strange. Hot water relaxes you though. I do not see why you can not take a shower before bed. You're weird.

    There is nothing wrong with that. The hot water will relax your muscles and tension and help you get to sleep with more ease.

    Why would you worry... except for going to bed sweaty from raised body temp!!
