Heat exhaustion or WHAT?!



Recommended Posts

Hey, everyone! I had my surgery on 3/19 and things have been going reasonably well for me— no throwing up, bad reactions or the like. I’ve been walking my dog increasingly and I’m at about 2 miles with him. That brings me to today, it’s a beautiful 85 degree day in Virginia and I’m camping with friends. We decided (more like they decided) that a 2-mile hike would be fun so off we went. By the time we got back to the site I was dizzy, no Water was going down and I was extremely nauseous. Now I’m sitting in the car cooling off but I still can’t seem to get any fluids down (I’ve tried warm water, cold water, Gatorade) and everything makes me nauseous. What can I do? Any advice is appreciated!

The heat has dragged me down too. It's too much, too soon for the body. 30-something degree temperature swings are difficult to adjust to. To top it off, tomorrow is supposed to be a high of only 50.

If you can't drink, you need to go to the hospital.
