Heat exhaustion is a precursor of heat stroke. It is much milder than heat stroke but does cause the following symptoms: severe sweating, loss of color, muscle cramps, fatigue, weakness, dizziness, headache, nausea, vomiting, and fainting. Not all symptoms are experienced by everyone with heat exhaustion.

Heat exhaustion is caused by exposure to very high temperatures and an inadequate supply of fluids. The condition requires immediate attention or it can progress. Falling asleep while suffering from heat stroke is not dangerous in and of itself. The act of sleeping does not make heat exhaustion worse and neither is it bad for the body when suffering from symptoms. The problem with falling asleep when suffering from heat exhaustion is that sleeping people are not able to treat themselves. Without treatment, the heat exhaustion can get worse or progress to heat stroke. Heat stroke is a medical emergency and can cause permanent damage or death.

If you are with someone, falling asleep is fine if they are able to handle treatment without your help. If you are alone, you should fight the urge to sleep until you can treat the condition or remove yourself from the environment causing the condition. Treatment of heat exhaustion is not complicated, but it is very important. The two main factors in treatment are abating the heat and hydrating. You should be removed from the heat if possible. If not, fans or cool water should be used to cool down the body, especially the head. It is important to sip on some water if you have heat exhaustion. Donít gulp, or it can cause you to vomit. Slowly and evenly sip water over the course of the next hour.

If treatment is swift and thorough, many people experience relief from the symptoms of heat exhaustion within an hour. Once the danger of heat has been removed and you are rehydrated, your body will require rest, and at this point, going to sleep is the best thing you can do for yourself.
