Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hello, I need an opinion please. Yesterday it was quite hot and I played some tennis outside for about an hour and a half. I didnt have any water with me. When I got home I had quite a bad headache and instead of drinking water I drank a beer and sat in the sun for some more time. After going indoors I still had a headache so I took my temperature and it was 37.5. Would you class this as a temperature? Do you think the headache was from dehydration and does body temperature increase during exercise?Also I did not have any symptoms or anything and didnt feel ill, I actually had appettite and was quite hungry at the time also.
Thank you for your response Dr. You actually just made a point which I forgot to mention. I did not actually sweat at all during the exercise. Even though it was strenous. Does this indicate that I was dehydrated and as a result as I did not sweat my body got hotter since sweating during sports is what normally regulates the body tempareture? I ask because I did not have any sypmtoms of feeling ill or a fever other than the headache which reduced after i started drinking water.
What about the headache? Would that be caused by dehydration as well? Normally when I exercise the temperature still remains around 36.5 so what would explain the increase in temperature and the headache?
