Hi there. Dehydration could account for these symptoms. This is a presursor to heat stroke. If this is the case, you may be perfectly fine now. On the other hand, extreme exercise like this will often unmask an underlying cardiac condition. This is why your doctor ordered an echocardiogram. You might also ask him for a stress test to simulate in the cardiac lab the exercise you were doing at the time of your symptoms.
