Heat Exhaustion vs. Heat Stroke

Question:

What symptoms and signs did you experience when you suffered heat exhaustion or heat stroke? Submit Your Comment

Comment from: Cwebster, 25-34 Female (Patient) Published: August 14

With heat stroke I had goosebumps on forearms after sweating stopped. I was not thirsty anymore, saliva was nonexistent and the times I had saliva, it was like glue. I forgot where I was multiple times. I still do not remember how I got home. Heart rate was pounding so bad it started to hurt my back, the body aches were the worst, I think because that was the only thing I could focus on.
