How do I know if I need to go to the hospital? Read details

I came home from trek on Saturday I was really sick on the bus ride home which was 9 hours. I almost had to get an IV but luckily didn't. I am now overheating like I was on the bus and feel like I'm going to pass out. I'm super light headed. What is wrong with me?

You are probably dehydrated. Lots of fluids, gatorade if you have it. Try to stay cool, and see a doctor if it doesn't go away within an hour or two.

It hasn't gone away in a long time. Like all day.

In that case a doctor's visit is probably a good idea. These are all the symptoms of severe dehydration and heat stroke, which are both fatal.

Fatal? What does that mean?

It's your decision, I know about medical problems, not family ones. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

It's okay she would just say it's unnecessary

You may be tired and dehydrated from the long journey you had. You need to drink a lot of water to help your body temperature to cool down. Then rest for some time to get some energy to go and see a doctor.
