Vasodilation.: Hot water causes your temperature to rise and your peripheral blood vessels to dilate. This may increase the volume of your circulatory system rather dramatically. If your blood volume is a bit on the low side ( as may happen in the am ) you can drop your blood pressure enough to get light headed. Sometimes people can pass out in a hot shower. ...Read more

My stomach feels upset and my throat is sore and feels a tad bit swollen almost. I work on riverboats and do not need to get off unless necessary.

Upset stomach/sore: Running a fever?? sounds like you are developing a viral infection. I would try to eat light foods - avoid spicy or highly seasoned foods, drink plenty of water, get plenty of rest, and consider salt water gargles 1/4 tsp of salt in 4 oz of warm water - gargle and spit out.
