Sunstroke

Recommended Posts

Spent the day in the garden yesterday building the kids a climbing frame. Felt a bit shivery last night and woke up feeling awful this morning.

Some paracetamol first thing made me feel better.

Started feeling shivery this afternoon again but temperature is 40.1. Taking alternate ibruprofen and paracetamol but not feeling any better and temperature is not coming down.

Does this sound like sunstroke? Never had it before.

Doesn't sound like it to me. Sunstroke is serious stuff, usually with vomiting and nausea.

With full sunstroke you'd usually be feeling confused and disorientated (insert joke here) too. It might be a very mild form of it, but even then I'd be very surprised.

I've seen someone with sunstroke in the Caribbean and it isn't something I'd wish on anyone.
