Can heatstroke cause long term effects to a bodys abality to tolerate heat and or cold in the future? I think yes. I have researched this and find no reference to this exact topic though. What do you know or think?
Open to all opinions and experiences of heatstroke. This should be something discussed during summer months. (maybe winter too if it effects the body during cold as well).
What say you?
Heatstroke and its long term effects are something I am really needing to understand. ANybody able to help with this? Thank you. I have had major heatstroke and it is very hot around here now. Over 111 degrees
I could not find any information from any reputable medical website like the CDC or NIH supporting this claim but in several articles there was mention that people that suffer from sunstroke or heatstroke are often less able to tolerate heat after such an illness.
Thank you. I asked around and after months I finally heard some of what your saying to be true. Ironically enough, mu doctor says otherwise. I don't think very highly of his abalities as a doctor though. He stated something stupid that he knows for a fact be to correct and right in my bloodwork. I am going to see if anywhere and/or anybody else has any information about this. I had had a very very bad heat stroke before and I can NOT handle the heat at all anymore. My thryroind is fine. (that is what the doctor said causes heat intollerance) well, I already had that checked as I used to have a probvlem with that. I find the LACK of information about what to do AFTER having heatstroke to be so lacking, it is saddening. The entire country is undergoing a massive heat wave right now and nothing is out there about this dangerous subject. Thank you for letting me know that you also could not find anything. I was beginning to think there was nothing for me to find. LOL It just is NOT out there at all. very sad indeed.
I know this conversation occurred a while ago, but I just happened upon it. I've had a similar experience, heat stroke (and dehydration) that has left me with a severely diminished ability to tolerate heat, especially when coupled with exertion.. and a significant intolerance to cold as well. This has been vexing, though often the effects aren't felt till hours later. I'm extra diligent about proper hydration, especially of the electrolyte variety.. but I'm still susceptible to the heat. And it's been about 6 years. Have you had any success finding information or docs that help with this? -ds
I have been since diagnosed with aphasia, OBS, memory loss etc. Been fighting the VA since 1980 with the heatstroke at MCRD San Diego. Diagnosed there with Severe Heatstroke.... Hospitalized for 5 days.... I see people out there with a 40% plus rating, what do we have to do to get the same treatment????
I have been recuperating from heat exhaustion for 2 weeks now and still have a warm flushed face, periodic headaches, lack of energy, and CANNOT tolerate temperatures above room temperatures. Doctors and the web have very little information for me. I am male 48 years old, in relatively good shape otherwise. I am worried about long term.
I did have a link sent to me by a friend. There is a difference between sun stroke and heat stroke I learned. It does say that there is an inabality to tollerate heat after such an episode. So, please at the least drink plenty of water to heal the brain. Get to the doctor and if need be a nerologist. I will send you the link if i still have it if you want o email a messga e to me. Best Wishes,
Heat stroke is a form of hyperthermia, an abnormally elevated body temperature with accompanying physical and neurological symptoms. Unlike heat cramps and heat exhaustion, two other forms of hyperthermia that are less severe, heat stroke is a true medical emergency that can be fatal if not properly and promptly treated. Heat stroke is also sometimes referred to as heatstroke.
I had a heat stroke and have been fighting with the VA for four years to get disability. I would like to find some clear and convincing evidence to take to my video hearing next month and put an end to this turmoil. Any help would be appreciated by an old Army RANGER.
