Heat stroke and long term

So I believe to have had a heat stroke during a music festival in the summer. All the symptoms relate to it or heat exhaustion but I lead more to heat stroke because I stopped sweating and feeling cold and heart rate was racing. But when I started feeling OFF it felt like a panic attack . But yea I wanted to know if anyone knew of long term effects for heat stroke or heat related illness ? I'm currently stuck with anxiety and DP/DR after that. Wanted to know what long term effects I might experience or should I get tested. I did an MRI about a month ago and doctor said everything was fine with my brain so I shouldn't expect that the heat stroke did brain damage right ?

      Please don't believe this, unless you were in a coma, then its possible you could die a while later, I couldn't find anything on reputable sites that said this.

      If there was long standing problems it would have shown on MRI, please don't stress yourself, and if your still worried go and talk t your GP

      Its not a problem, I know exactly where your coming from and I really do understand, you will only die from heat stroke if you go sit in very high temperature and go past heat exhaustion ( which I think is what you had )and then ignore it till you collapse, your not going to do that so your fine, remember so you never feel like this again, wear a hat, drink plenty of water and stay chilled

      Yea it just felt so horrible I was so cold and couldn't sweat and kept having trouble breathing . And I guess the thought came back when my hand started shaking a lot and I have this weird "light as a feather" body feeling it's weird all of a sudden lol imma just try not to think about it so much and stop overthinking so much it's my worse enemy

    My partner had really bad heatstroke years ago, but he was older and had high bp, I asked if there would be any lasting effects and they said no, so who told you it cause problems much later? If u had MRI and it was good I can't see there's any residual problems, it sounds like some of your symptoms now could be panic/anxiety related.

      Honestly I was on the internet checking to see how long before I can work out intense again and it popped out in the article how it could have long lasting effects or even death after a couple months so it just got me scared TBH rolleyes probably over thought it but when your anxiety grabs a hold on a thought it's hard to let go.

      And out of nowhere I get minor symptoms where my right hand starts shaking on stop or my right side of my face hurts so it brings it back uprolleyes thanks for your reply tho it's reassuring to know !
