The summer season has now begun and these heat waves have been felt since the beginning of June. Even though summer weakness is pretty normal, sometimes there can be something more to it.
In fact, if these symptoms also occur together with summer weakness, it is better to run for cover because you could suffer from a very common problem in summer: heat stroke.
Beware of these symptoms because in certain situations they can have serious consequences
A heat stroke is a problem due to a rapid increase in body temperature, so fast that our body does not react in time. In fact, our body responds to thermal changes such as the increase in body temperature by increasing sweating to keep the temperature stable.
Yet when the rise in temperature is very rapid and sudden, the body can fail to keep the temperature at physiological values. And that’s when heat stroke occurs.
Symptoms of heatstroke are nausea, confusion, a general sense of weakness, and blurred vision. Ringing in the ears is sometimes heard, and tachycardia often occurs, and these symptoms are followed by a stop in sweating. Physical stress is very serious so it is essential to immediately take action and quickly reduce the temperature.
How to cure heat stroke
It is essential to act immediately when heatstroke is suspected because if you do not pay attention to these symptoms in certain situations they can have serious consequences. The treatment involves the application of ice or cold baths directly, to quickly lower the body temperature. Then, rehydration is a key step in recovering from heat stroke.
Finally, prevention is essential: to prevent heat exhaustion in the summer, it is advisable to always stay hydrated and eat healthy and light.
Finally, paying attention to the first signs of heatstroke, such as a feeling of excessive heat and widespread weakness, will make it easier to prevent this malaise.
