My mom (65 yrs. old, healthy w/ asthma) had an episode in August that she describes as heat stroke
/dehydration - exposed to
warm weather and not much to
drink. That night, for a couple hours, she was super overheat
ed and couldn't get her body to
cool down. She finally cooled herself off by using cold, wet wash cloths on her head and upper body. Others in the house were comfortably sleeping under their covers, so the house wasn't overly warm at the time.
