Was that heat stroke or should I be concerned that something worse happened? Got up, didn't eat anything, had no more than a sip of water, and went right outside to work in 90 degree heat. Pretty strenuous stuff in a nearby field. Worked for a while when

There : There are two conditions that can occur prior to experiencing heat stroke. The first is heat cramps which can be felt in the abdominal, arms and legs. These symptoms are associated with excessive sweating, shortness of breath and dizziness. The other is heat exhaustion, which are all of the symptoms you experienced: nausea, exhauastion, weakness and dizziness. These conditions are precursors to heat stroke and can be overcome y allowing the body to cool down, relaxing in the shade (as you did) and rehydrating the body. Heat stroke is associated with the bodies inability to recover from the hot body tempurature and requires emergency medical attention to decrease the chance of brain injury, organ injury and death. It sounds like you recovered from heat exhaustion and are fine now. If you experience any untoward related symptoms such as continued dizziness, abdominal pains, inability to sweat, or ongoing exhaustion, call your doctor. Also, take your tempurature. If it is over 101 consistently, call your doctor. ...Read more
