Heat exhaustion how long to recover

Common Questions and Answers about Heat exhaustion how long to recover


572651 tn?1333939396 I mowed the grass in 80 degree heat the other night - my MS leg objected to the heat, but my BP didn't really budge. When I came in to rest my BP was only 94/62. there is a water aerobics class I am doing twice a week - it does make me feel better and I told the doctor that the exercise helped but it was only temporary. By the time I get back to my desk I am again exhausted.
Avatar n tn It took me years to get to the bottom of my orthostatic intolerance and years to recover from that, not to mention the cancer. NOw that I have (had) a life again, I am quite concerned that I have lost it once again. Any comments?
Avatar n tn Even if this means just a brief break, give your body the chance to recover - Control the temperature – heat and cold can affect fatigue. Dress appropriately; perhaps get cooling garments if heat can’t be avoided. - Exercise- she again emphasized what we know (but it flies in the face of conventional thinking) – exercise really does help with fatigue. She said we should start small – she starts her patients who haven’t exercised regularly on 3-5 minutes of exercise a day.
1192745 tn?1287909458 On good days, a four day trip like you describe will wear me out, and it'll take a couple of days for me to recover. So you may not be up to snuff tomorrow evening - keep that in mind. I have been able to do camping trips and not be completely worn out, but I'm not doing anything - just sitting and relaxing. Is this trip going to be outside in the heat? That's another thing that really bothers me - getting too hot can take several days to recover from.
Avatar m tn our summers are getting hotter and hotter and I used to love the sun but what can i do to help this heat intolerance ?now i have a name for it ,it's not just a"fainting fit" there must be something I can do to make it less extreme...if its MS is it something my neuro might have an idea about?
Avatar m tn I ask because 2 days lost, just to recover from heat exhaustion seems a bit longer if the heart was perfect. My heart is very damaged and normally I recover in a couple of hours, but of course we all are different.
Avatar f tn Me and Narcotics - Why do I want to go off? I want to see how my body feels when it is free of drugs and foreign substances. I honestly do not know because I have been in chronic pain for many years since 2003 and have taken these drugs while medically supervised throughout that time. I know what I am going through now is due to opiate withdrawal. I may also be suffering from chronic body pain as well. I have FMS and HMJS since car accident.
Avatar m tn When can I expect the withdrawals to end and how long does it take to get back to my normal self with no effects whatsoever of the Fentanyl? I seriously need help!
162948 tn?1205256292 I know your period is the lining in your uterus which the mirena keeps it thin so obviously keeps mine to nothing since i dont bleed. I am really concerned now as to how long it is going to take me to concieve. I had a friend who got hers pulled out and got pregnant the next day. Now I really wonder when I should get it taken out. Now or when hes here so we can have sex right away.
Avatar n tn You are not alone, I too suffer from extreme exhaustion and lots of long term side effects. I agree that it's hard to fight the system but you have to keep trying! Keep checking with different doctors...........at least that's what I'm doing, it just is NOT normal for an HCV SVR to experience this much fatigue (there must be something else wrong). You sound like a very caring man and she is lucky to have you. My best to you and your wife.
Avatar m tn But the RLS is driving me insane. HOW can I stop this? And when will I start to feel better. Can long term sub users who have gone through withdrawal please help me? I was always told the withdrawal would be very mild, and this is a miracle drug. I will say, my life and habits have changed. I have no desire to use any pills at the moment, and I don't expect that to change. I was abusing hydros after 2 shoulder surgeries.
Avatar n tn I try to drink plenty of water to make my pee run clear to light yellow, and when I get fitfull kicks while trying to sleep (sign of dehydration), I put a heat pack on my stomach and that seems to temporarily settle it down. These practices feel more like temporary solutions than long term especially for trying to get back into weightlifting. I don't get it, but it seems exercise makes my stomach worse, however, when I don't exercise I feel sluggish on another end.
Avatar n tn Anyone out there have any thoughts on how to make the pain just a little more tolerable. I have raised 8 kids and now I just want to play but I hurt so badly that there are days I can't make myself go down the stairs.. I can't live like this anymore. I want to play with my grandkids without paying for it for days. There has to be a place out ther that in less painful... PLEASE help.. I will let you all know how the Fibro study goes....
Avatar n tn My physician told me that it could take up to a year for the body to recover from having a Murina in and not to worry, however, it's been close to two and my body is still haywire. I'm going to my OB GYN in March to check for premature menopause, because I really don't know what else could be causing these symptoms.
Avatar n tn so that you don't like fall out of bed or probably get neck cramps - the brain is a VERY complex thing but it's cool), idk how to explain it, but basically motor things. And so as not to get off-topic in this cool thread, I was led again to this by mistake - I typed in a long set of words on google search intended to try to find something completely different and this was the only search result. It's like fate. In any case, it's reminding me to sleep. I think I'm having less fears now.
Avatar n tn To answer the specific question, "How do I know when skipped heart beats are dangerous?" You don't. Only a doctor can determine that with equipment like an EKG. The big clue that something is wrong is if you begin passing out, which from what you say is highly unlikely since your heart tests are normal. If you're just having ectopic beats, this probably isn't even worth you thinking about it.
Avatar f tn This makes alot of sense to me. Now I need to ask my doctor about how to treat these symptoms. I tell you my story just in case you relate to it, you can check out Dermagraphism which there is no known cause or cure. My dr. said that probably 20 percent of the population has it but doesn't know they have it. Only 1 percent or so are diagnosed with it. The only way to treat it is with anti-histamines which for me do not work.
Avatar n tn Wish I could understand medical lingo better, but I push through it as best I can. (you would not believe how long I spent trying to figure out what asymptote meant (Calculus was the end of my math career in college!)) You also answered another question I had - I was wondering about a test to determine the plasma level - and you said there was not one, at least in the states.
Avatar f tn I think the best way to recover is to talk therapy for both of you esp hubby. Yes I totally agree that this whole IVF thingy is so emotionally and financially stressful for everyone. I'm sure your hubby felt your pain and lost. Men usually keep emotional feelings to themselves. So seek some assistance... I pray that you recover well very soon. All will not be lost just as afrochique123 said, there's always treasure at the end of the rainbow. Stay positive for you and your hubby.
Avatar n tn hello just wanted to give another update.We went bsck to the doctor Wednesday to see how many mature follicles we had this time (PRAISE GOD!!!) we had 2 we had a 2.5cm on one ovary and a 1.8 on the other ovary.I had my blood levels checked my Estrogen was 448 they said that was good.My husband had a count of 5.6 million after being washed they said we only needed 2 to 5 million so yesterday we went and had another IUI this one feels much better.
Avatar n tn Can anyone tell me about how long it will take? How long I will be in the hospital? And about how long I will need to take off of work? Thanks for all the help.
975514 tn?1325001538 The pain and fatigue is a real drag and the medication options out there are hard to juggle. It takes awhile to find a decent combo. How long have you been using the Tramadol? Do you think it's effective? Some people swear by it, and this is just my opinion and I am no doctor of course, but it actually caused me horrible migraines. I can't tolerate Tramadol. The Gabapentin was very effective for me with a combo of Diclofenac and an effective muscle relaxer.
15607012 tn?1442453350 Hi Sharin and thanks for your response. My father did spray a lot of herbicides and pesticides around the farm (gallons). He would often spray much more than the necessary amount in high concentration. In this case he hadn't sprayed anything at the time I became sick since he was in the hospital for nearly a month, but while he was away in August 2013 I did spray a small amount of Hot Shot under the eve of the porch because of the wasps. So this is also a possibility.
Avatar n tn I do find that it is worse when I eat and I full so full that I can't breath, no matter how much I eat. But I yawn all day long, trying to catch that " one deep breath". I continue to go to the doctor about every six months so if nothing else she can at least do blood work and re-assure me that there is nothing wrong there. I don't know what it is, what causes it, but it is obviously a BIG problem for a lot of people.
Avatar f tn related to the cyst. Approximately how long does it take to recover from the surgery? I'm 18 years old, non-smoker, not obese, in shape, and have no other pre-existing conditions except intermittent asthma. Also, did anyone with a dermoid cyst experience asymptomatic elevated testosterone. My test. levels are 1.5 times higher than normal but I don't have any male pattern hair growth, voice deepening, etc.
544292 tn?1268886268 So happy that you found us here. When I started journaling a long time ago, I could barely find anyone to help me. Not that I am happy that there's so many of us. But you know what I mean. It is easier if you have friends. Make yourself Comfy!
Avatar f tn I couldn't believe I was having heat exhaustion again (although I had been training for 1/2 marathon before and during all of this, which could have added to heat exhaustion). Three days later, after sleepless nights due to my rapid heart rate, I went ER. My EKG came back abnormal and CT scan spotted small PE. Was in the hospital for 8 days and now on warfin for 1 yr. I keep wondering if this birkam yoga could have caused it??
465121 tn?1207838426 We talked more about my activity tolerance and I gave her many examples of what I can tolerate, when, and how long I need to recover. My pulse O2 was 96% at rest HR 80. To show her one of these examples, we walked to the stairs and I walked up and down one flight of steps and back to her office. My O2 dropped to 91% with a HR of 104, and this was on a good day. It took 10 minutes before I was able to talk normal again. My 02 doesnt' drop enough to qualify me for oxygen.
544292 tn?1268886268 So happy to see all of you, and welcome new friends. This is a good place to be if you want to get off Tramadol ... You can do it!
