  • Fever

  • Decrease in urine volume

  • Reduced sweating

  • Pain over the temples

Your doctor may ask these questions to check for this disease:

  • Do you have pain at the back of your head?

  • Are your hands or feet hot?

  • Have your headaches been occurring without any seizures?

  • Do you have a fever?

  • Are you urinating less?

Treatmentof Heatstroke
