Health Tip: Learn Warning Signs of Heat Stroke

(HealthDay News) -- As summer weather heats up, it is important to recognize symptoms of heat stroke.

Normally, you regulate your body temperature by sweating. But in some cases, the body's temperature-control system is overtaxed and your temperature rises too quickly.

Very high body temperature can cause damage to the brain and to other organs. People at highest risk of heat-related illness include: infants and children up to 4 years old, people over 65, those who are overweight and those on certain medications.

The CDC says symptoms of heat stroke include:

  • Body temperature above 103 degrees F.
  • Red, hot and dry skin, and little or no sweating.
  • Rapid, strong pulse.
  • Throbbing headache.
  • Dizziness.
  • Nausea.
  • Confusion.
  • Loss of consciousness.
