When you’re dealing with heat stroke, your body is often at risk of developing heat stroke.
Heat stroke is the leading cause of heat-related deaths in the United States, with more than 50,000 deaths in 2017 alone.
But, for many people, this type of severe heat stroke doesn’t cause any immediate problems.
You can, however, have a much worse consequence than simply experiencing the pain of a mild heat stroke: It can lead to serious complications, including organ damage, death, and even permanent brain damage.1.
Heat Strokes Affect Your Heart and Blood Pressure While your heart may feel the heat, it can’t actually heat the blood as well as it does.
The body uses the body’s oxygen supply as a fuel.
So, when your heart gets a little bit hot, it releases some of that oxygen into your blood stream.
As the blood circulates, it sends the oxygenated blood to the liver, which is used to break down fats and break down proteins in the liver.
That’s where the body stores fat and stores oxygen.
As a result, heat stroke is sometimes caused by heat exhaustion or heat shock.
The more heat stroke you experience, the more likely it is that you will experience both types of heat stroke together.
If you’ve ever been out in the heat (or on a hot day), you may have noticed that your body feels like it’s on fire.
That may be because of the increased blood flow to the extremities, or the heat may be burning the muscles.
As long as you don’t have a medical condition that causes heat exhaustion, the heat stroke will probably pass.2.
Heat Shock Symptoms and Treatment Heat stroke symptoms can be severe, especially if you experience heat stroke before it has even started.
Symptoms include: Increased heart rate and breathing problems
