My is 41 yes old, has had heatstroke at least 5 times in one…

Customer Question
My is 41 yes...

My is 41 yes old, has had heatstroke at least 5 times in one year for his job. This was about 10 yrs ago. Everyday his leg muscles and tendons and maybe ligaments tighten up very bad that he feels sick. Cane you tell me anything that can help. He has been in emergency rooms at least 5 times and no one can tell us nothing. He hasn't worked in over 10yrs and has no insurance

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Have you noticed any swelling?

He was drinking too much water that depleted his electrolytes, magnesium and potassium. He was in the hospital 4 days last week and they told him to drink Gatorade when he was feels dehydrated. He over compensates and drinks it all the time. He says he feels like he is not hydrating and then cramps up and hurts til he is sick.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

He is depressed because he can't work or do anything else and has suicidal thoughts the more this drags on. No one can tell him what's wrong or how to fix it

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
