Written by : DoctorNDTV Team

Before heatstroke, the person suffers from heat exhaustion. Symptoms of heat exhaustion are confusion, fatigue, heavy sweating, weakness, faintness and dark yellow or orange urine. When the body can no longer keep the temperature normal, heat exhaustion becomes heatstroke. Symptoms of heatstroke are body temperature over 104 degrees F (40 degrees C), hot and dry skin, absence of sweating, muscle cramps, flushing, shallow breathing and a rapid and weak pulse.
