Customer Question

my son has a condition where he temporarily become sick when he is exposed to the sun and heat. This mainly occurs on very hot days or when he is exercising. This has been going on for several years. His mother has the same condition, but her way of dealing with it is not to exercise.
JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?
Customer: He will get a migraine like headache and vomit. This will continue for about 20-30 minutes, then he is fine. We had him checked with his doctor and did not find anything. No medications.
JA: Is the headache episodic or daily? And what about nausea?
Customer: Headaches only occur when he has these episodes
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Nothing else

It is called (Exertional) heat illness. He should avoid very hot days and exercising in hot condition. He should stay or exercise in the air conditioning place.
