    Who told you it was a heat stroke? If it was a heat stroke read this..

    Heat stroke is a form of hyperthermia, an abnormally elevated body temperature with accompanying physical and neurological symptoms. Unlike heat cramps and heat exhaustion, two other forms of hyperthermia that are less severe, heat stroke is a true medical emergency that can be fatal if not properly and promptly treated. Heat stroke is also sometimes referred to as heatstroke.

    could you have had heat exaustion instead?

    If you are positive you should have been taken to the hospital immediately.

    Since it appears to be hours after the incident and you do not mention any more symptoms, I tend to think it was not heat stroke.

    Morgan, its best to go but in fact many of us (far more than should) have not. rest and tons of fluids is needed the headache is your gift for not hydrating correctly. have your mom or whoever watch your temp and eyes (pupils) to insure your coming out of it. A doctor visit is still best though.

    you die, heat stroke is extremely difficult to recover from even in the emergency room. If you have heat stroke your body has already started to shut down and redirect your blood flow to the core organs to try and protect your brain.If you have heat stroke you are probably already unconsious or at least tottaly out of your normal mental state. if you arrive at the emergency room with heat stroke you are far more likely to die than if you arrive with a heart attac.
