If you would like to protect yourself from heatstroke, you must know the symptoms and ways to avoid this condition. Also referred to as heatstroke, sunstroke is a serious condition that results from overexposure to the sun or heat. Not all heatstroke is a result of the sun. Heatstroke can occur because you’ve become too hot during exercising or working in overheated conditions. You can even suffer heatstroke because you’ve been sitting in the sun or other hot environment.
When your body reaches a temperature above 90 F it loses its ability to cool itself down. Depending on age, size, or medical conditions, heatstroke affects some much sooner than others. Young people, the elderly, overweight people and certainly those with serious conditions are much more susceptible.
