Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. I am dr. Princess Claudya will help answer your questions.
The symptoms you feel, namely feeling weak and your head feel heavy when you stand in the hot sun, may be caused by a condition called a heat stroke.
The occurrence of heat stroke is caused by exposure to heat conditions in the body continuously so that the body is no longer able to cool down. This, for example, occurs when someone is exposed to the sun for a long time or has excessive exercise. Heat stroke can be very dangerous when the body temperature reaches 40 degrees Celsius or more.
Symptoms of heat stroke include:
High body temperature Fainting, or decreased consciousness Pulsating headache Dizziness Nausea and vomiting Weakness or muscle cramps Fast heartbeat Skin becomes red and dry No sweating even though body temperature is high. In severe cases, it can be accompanied by changes in mental state or behavior, such as confusion, slurred speech, irritability, and it can also lead to seizures. However, the weakness symptoms you experience when in the hot sun can also be caused by other things, namely:
Dehydration, for example when fasting or lack of fluid intake Lack of blood sugar levels (hypoglycemia): this can also occur in people with diabetes who take sugar drugs in excess doses of heart / blood circulation disorders, for example in cases of shock or heart attack Stroke To determine the cause of complaints You, it's good to consult further with a general practitioner first for examination. If necessary, the doctor will perform investigations and / or refer you to a neurologist or cardiologist for further tracking. And after that you will be treated according to the underlying conditions.
Things you can do to improve and prevent worsening of your disease are:
Drink enough water, about 2 liters / day. Consume nutritious foods regularly and sufficiently according to your nutritional and calorie adequacy numbers. Avoid excessive diets Get enough rest, sleep 7-8 hours per day Wear closed hats and clothes when in the hot sun to avoid direct exposure to heat on your body Exercise at least 3 times a week to support good blood circulation Try to always have people near you so can provide immediate help if you are so weak that you pass out. Limpness which is even accompanied by fainting and often recurring, often accompanied by chest pain, weakness of limbs, accompanied by high fever are signs of emergency. If there is this, you must immediately consult a doctor or the nearest emergency room for immediate treatment.
That's all the explanation from me, hopefully it helps and is useful :)
