Symptoms of Heat Exhaustion

Considering the heat wave coming our way, I thought it might be wise to be familiar with the symptoms of heat exhaustion. (After heat exhaustion comes heat stroke, which can be deadly.)

Here they are:

  • Faintness or dizziness
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Heavy sweating often accompanied by cold, clammy skin
  • Weak, rapid pulse
  • Pale or flushed face
  • Muscle cramps
  • Headache
  • Weakness or fatigue
