I Got Heat Exhaustion! – Who Woulda Thunk It? — See Signs and Symptoms
In the midst of working here at the radio station, I had a busy weekend with home projects and playing music.
I had spent all day removing sod and leveling the area to replace my pool. Anyway, oddly enough, ? I got heat exhaustion!
Weird huh? Not to mention a pretty nasty sunburn (which I usually don’t get) Anyway, I didn’t see it comin! I guess I was dehydrated from working outside in the heat all day. Then on the way to my gig in Hermiston to set up. I got sick and had to stop and throw up! (sorry) And it took a while to feel okay again. (weird)
The reason I tell you this is because…my symptoms were fatigue (which is common for me so I didn’t think anything of it.) And, dizziness which is also common for me sometimes. lol…and disorientation..which is not unusual for me and I embarrassingly admit! Bahahahaaaa! Seriously!
But, the thing that surprised me was the rapid heart rate…and the instant nausea and need to throw up all of a sudden. And the EXTREME EXHAUSTED feeling! Like no tolerance…just need to survive feeling.
It was awful I have to admit. So it was a rough day for me. But we performed before the Fireworks at Hermiston’s Butte Park, and it was a fantastic event with an amazing display of Fireworks! So all was well. I spent the following day working in the sun as well but this time I made sure to stay hydrated and took breaks in the cool pool or air conditioning!
