Mgt: After being in the sun, rehydration with water is advised. If you are dizzy, then an evaluation with your doctor should be completed. Your doctor will check your BP and cardiac condition.

Dehydration: can definitely cause feelings of dizziness and tiredness, and this can be worsened in the sun. Dehydration can cause a number of other problems including headache, muscle aches and pains, skin wrinkles, drop in blood pressure, passing out. Dehydration increases the likelihood of urinary tract infections and kidney stones. Remaining well hydrated can make a world of difference in how you feel.
