I had a heat stroke in July while doing military training. Body temperature was recorded at 106.6 Fahrenheit. I collapsed in a seizure after severe cramping for about an hour and a half. I could not walk afterward for two days. My vision went fuzzy prior to collapsing. It is now December and ever since the incident I have fainted twice for no apparent reason (no drugs or alcohol), some days I can barely get out of bed. Some nights I cannot fall asleep, feels like I imagine insomnia to be like. Then I will completely fall asleep in class. Has happened multiple occasions. Some days I feel like I am looking through a cloud. Some days I feel fantastic. My energy levels are extremely low some days and I sleep 12+ hours for no reason. For a few days in a row I will be fine then I will have an off day. It is affecting my school performance and my relationships. I feel symptoms of depression, but I have nothing to be depressed about. I have never had any of these problems before the heat stroke. I cannot get a solid answer from the military doctors (probably afraid of discharge). This is my second heat injury, first was heat exhaustion, minor.
Morning crack The only way to really tell is get into the doctor and have them run some test and make sure nothing is wrong. Don't worry to much our minds once something like this happens really can mess with us. And something like depression or stress related anxiety what ever they want to call it could take over and you don't even know it You need to get into the doctors there and let them know what is going on.First rule out all medical problems and be aware of this so when your out you always have plenty of water. best of luck most recovery from heat stroke but you never can tell and it's better to be safe. Keep after the doctors they are there for you. The system is messed up but your life is more Importaint. Thanks for all the good service you are doing for us. Keep the chin up.
