2. Dizziness

Another sign of heat exhaustion to watch out for is dizziness. A hard term to define, people use the term dizzy to describe when they feel unbalanced. Its general use is one of the reasons people fail to take note of the seriousness of this symptom. While standing up too quickly can cause a momentary dizzy feeling, you should not always brush off the sensation as nothing.

If you are outside on a hot day or in a building without air conditioning and you feel dizzy, then you might be experiencing heat exhaustion. If you are experiencing dizziness in combination with vomiting or weakness, then heat exhaustion is even more likely. Find a cool place, drink some water and eat something. Do not go outside again until all the uneasy feelings have subsided.
