With temperatures being high over the course of the summer, people should be aware of the symptoms of heat exhaustion, heat stroke, and heat cramps.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, heat-related illnesses happen when the body is not able to cool itself during extreme heat. When the body does not cool itself by sweat, body temperature will rise faster than it can cool itself down.
According to the CDC, the symptoms of heat exhaustion can include heavy sweating, cold, pale, clammy skin, nausea, muscle cramps, weakness, dizziness, a headache, or fainting.
Heat stroke has very similar symptoms compared to heat exhaustion with dizziness, confusion, and even becoming unconscious. More clarifying symptoms include a high body temperature, fast strong pulse, and hot, red, dry skin.
