Heat Exhaustion

by Garrett
(Bradenton, Florida, USA)

I was at my baseball practice in the beginning of August in Bradenton, Florida.



It was about 90 degrees outside and I did not have much to drink the entire day.


I started getting dizzy on my way out to the field, but, it was when I started working out that I began to feel the heat exhaustion coming on.


The team had to do laps around the field and I pulled my coach off to the side and told him that my head was spinning and that I could not even stand up straight.


He called the trainer and told him that I was not feeling well and they took me inside where they told me that I had heat exhaustion.


He told me that the reason why I got it was because of my diet. I needed to take in less sodium and drink more water throughout the day.


I ended up feeling alright at the end of the day.


However, it is easier for me to get heat exhaustion now that I have already had it.


I need to be careful and I advise anyone who will be in the heat anytime soon to drink plenty of water and keep themselves cool.
