Heat stroke damage

Common Questions and Answers about Heat stroke damage


Avatar m tn It has not happened since, so I thought it might have been heat stroke. Is it possible for long term damage to have occured and what kinds of test should I ask for?
Avatar m tn I think that heat stroke as the solo cause of your dog's problem is highly unlikely. The walk in the heat could have contributed to an existing problem and may have exacerbated that problem. For instance, if your dog had been slightly dehydrated, walking in the heat could have increased that dehydration, but the problem would have shown up quickly and not 3 days later. It is really best to have your veterinarian do complete blood work, urinalysis, and other diagnostics to determine the cause.
Avatar f tn 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 overheated 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.
Avatar f tn So what exactly is heat intolerance and how does it relate to MS? I know the heat can exaggerate symptoms already there. But does MS make you more susceptible to getting overheated? I have noticed ever since the weather got hot (80s and 90s) I have trouble with the heat. As I've mentioned before, I run a lot. When I am running I get overheated way too fast. A lot fast than the other runners I train with.
1847422 tn?1332870656 I was on the verge of heat stroke twice in my college years, and appart form the splitting headache, that is exactly how it feels. I usually don't do anything but go to my car and then inside again after it is 80 or higher. If it is hot enough to cause sweat, it is too hot for me! I went to the St. Patricks parade and it was 82. All I did was stand around and I was over-heated and really messed up (eyes acting up too) for almost 24 hours!
565254 tn?1224720053 People without MS who developed severe heat exhaustion (or even heat stroke if they service it) often report an intolerance to heat that they never had before. I have heard from patients that it was years before they returned to their prior state of being able to tolerate high temps. Those with actual heat stroke (shut down of sweating and many body systems, temps to 107 degrees and higher) often have permanent neuro damage.
Avatar n tn I was overcome with heat stroke in 2001 and ever since frequently suffer from heat exhaustion very quickly. The problem is, I'm an endurance athlete who needs to spend many hours outside training - be it in the heat, humidity, cold, etc. For the last 2 weekends, I've been overcome with heat exhaustion during events. I keep trying to train during the week - but I seem to be getting more fatigued and exhausted.
Avatar m tn Could this have been nerve damage from me showing off or because of the intense heat from the heater on the train?
Avatar n tn During the summer use a hat or scarf and avoid the sun on the head for long periods. The stroke disables are very vulnerable to heat stroke. They may not be able to compensate properly. Make sure you bring two varieties of cold drink and offer sips ar fifteen minute intervals. Make sure the sunlight hits as much skin area as possible. Ideally for at least 45 minutes per day. The value of a moderate amount of sunlight every day cannot be underestimated.
Avatar n tn It is nonsense that incontinence after a stroke is forever. There is more nonsense going on about how to care for the stroke damaged elderly than I can believe. So never give up hope.
Avatar n tn It has been three months after the event and the following is part of a neuro consult--left hemisphere stroke, on CT chronic changes of subcortical white matter disease and remote focal infarctions associated with significant atrophy, significant spastic hemiparesis and language difficulty. He also feels she has reached a plateau with little expectation for future improvements. Probable underlying dementia superimposed on the stroke. I would like help dealing with her spasticity issues.
Avatar f tn slurred speech and now also has swallowing issues. Could the possible heat stroke have caused brain damage to the extent that it could cause this kind of neurological damage and decline? She's had cat scans, an MRA and a neurologist did an EMG - all were normal. They are sending her to another neurologist at Virginia Mason in Seattle (in January) to see if they can find anything. Could this possibly have been caused by the heat stroke?
Avatar f tn If you don't perspire freely, it's important to know the signs/symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke and steps you can take to prevent them. Medications can also affect the body's ability to regulate temperature, so it might be worth asking your pharmacist some questions on this topic. It was brutal here yesterday with the temperature hitting 101 and the heat index registering 116. Hope everybody stays cool and has a great weekend.
Avatar n tn My Mother is a post stroke survivor and has had this sympton for over 8 year. The side of the stroke is cold and heat sensitive, but is always colder than the other side of her body. exercise and movement seem to help. Also applying heat compresses. It sometimes becomes painful. Her doc says it is post stroke nerve damage and is rather like shingles when she has the pain.
580765 tn?1274922960 I have noticed no correlation between the occurrence of the episodes and any other conditions, other than the progression of the stroke- like symptoms in and around the time of the racing episodes. A neurologist that I saw Tuesday ruled out MS and other neurological conditions, based on several clear MRIs, nerve conduction tests, and lumbar puncture results. He said that all of my symptoms were likely due to an electrial misfire in my heart.
Avatar m tn I cant socialise I dint see my family this easter as I cant bare this constant brain damage pain. - Heat hyper sensitivity i cant handle any heat I feel like mild does are like a dessert basic activities on a cooler day eg walking to the doctors in seconds Of walking my body over heats. - Chronic fatigue – The most basic activities eg doing the dishes putting rubbish out, going to get groceries causes massive fatigue were I need to sleep or atleast lay down and rest.
Avatar m tn 10 years ago my father was disgnosed with atrial fibrilation, he had several types of beta blockers including sotalol and flecanide, none of these agreed with him so he was fitted a pacemaker, since he had the pacemaker he also went on to have ablaisions, this was about 3 years ago,over the last 3 weeks he has being feelig very tired looking pale,feeling dizzy he has also had one vey swolen ankle and the otherone a little swolen, he is 72 and looks quite good for his age last week we went to th
489228 tn?1291535054 The antibiotics esp say not to ge in the sun. When I have I get a rash etc. but I looked it up and there is a risk of heat stroke! So I don't think it is something to play around with. We have had a heat wave here in MO so I daily am thankful for air. Funny my younger too kids have had it cushier just because of my age etc... but then maybe God knew Drew would go to Iraq, in that heat...
Avatar n tn This should not be something serious if the injury is a neuropraxia and hence the damage reversible. Other types of nerve damage viz, neurontemesis and axonotmesis. These can be detected by electromyogram and nerve conduction velocity study and neurontemesis is the most severe and irreversible. Your doctor should assess the damage and advise treatment accordingly. Take care.
Avatar f tn I am 38yr female who for the past going on 5mths now have had multiple symptoms/problems that started suddenly with no previous health issues other than high cholesterol and being overweight. I presented to local emergeny dept with stroke like symptoms. By the time I got there the symptoms were gone and the whole "attack" Lasted about 1hr from start to finish and I was fine, completely normal again.
Avatar f tn for severe heat intolerance. However, many people with neurologic damage, like a stroke are more sensitive than the usual healthy person.
211940 tn?1267884866 Hi there, For many people with MS the heat is their enemy, but some people are not affected in this way. It can be the heat from allowing our body to get over heated or it can be from a raise of our body temperature when we are sick. This is called Uthoffs phenomenon. I think I might have spelt it wrong but if you google it will answer most of your questions. Basically a raise in body temperature can temporarily worsen our symptoms.
Avatar n tn i have pain, thumping and heat in my right ear...and am varying degrees of dizzy all the time. this has been going on for 3 weeks. ENT doesn't know what's up. scheduled for an MRI. antiverts help with the dizzy. but that's no cure. antibiotics didn't help. the don't think it's an infection. any ideas?
Avatar m tn epilepsy (several types) Tay-Sachs disease and other storage diseases spinocerebellar degenerative diseases Hallervorden-Spatz syndrome Huntington's disease multiple system atrophy corticobasal degeneration Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease brain infections, including HIV focal brain damage, including from stroke or tumor heat stroke electrical shock hypoxia (oxygen deprivation) toxins and drugs Myoclonus also occurs normally, as a person falls asleep or while sleeping.
Avatar f tn I would say he needs to go to a veterinarian. It sounds like he has heat stroke and that can be remedied with access to water and keeping him inside but at this point he may have developed some kidney damage, maybe a urinary tract infection. Learn from this. Never leave a pet outside without access to shade and water.
Avatar f tn Hey ladies, pray for me and my family, my cousin has passed away at age 21 from conditioning for basketball and had a heat stroke. Its seems all so unreal and has brought on a lot of stress for me. The funeral is next saturday, say a prayer that i dont go into labor during that day, i am already having contractions but not consistent. I have my 37week apt 2mrw and will talk this over with my DR. I can tell the stress is affecting the baby.
Avatar f tn you could get sun poisoning or heat stroke.. and ive been told not to take too hot baths because it can over heat baby and cause brain damage.. idk how true that is but its probably the same for the sun but if you wear sun block, stay hydrated &; dont stay too long you should be fine.
1446472 tn?1300962219 i had sun stroke or heat 10 years ago and since that day till now i have sudden dizzy attacks which prevent me of being normal active person , i do wonder is it possible that the sun stroke caused any damage in my blood vessel ? coz these attacks r like horrican i feel all my head full of pressure ears too with pain and everything around keep moving it stayslike 4 days then it becomes lighter and 10 days later its not there !with no cure or anymedication.
