Are sunstroke and heatstroke the same?
Q. Is there any difference between sunstroke and heatstroke and are there certain signs and symptoms I should look for?
A. These two terms refer to the same condition. Heatstroke (or sunstroke) happens when the body can no longer maintain a temperature of under 105° F when exposed to hot weather. People almost always have warning symptoms before heatstroke, yet sometimes they do not pay attention, or are not able to take action.
