I'm 18. A little small for my age or just average.
Anyway, I really get affected with heat. for example last year i was outside waiting and all of a sudden it hit me. i started sweating. then i started yawning. and felt like I was going to fall over. It's really weird because I normally do not sweat. Next, my lips started to turn a different color (from what I was told) and I felt numb. and could NOT stand up by myself. I sat down for a about 30 minutes and the drinking water really helped. after that I was completely fine.

This has actually happened to me a few other times. Sometimes it could be really hot indoors and I'll started to sweat and feel like I'm going to fall over and can't stand up well at all. Yesterday, when I was going swimming I felt really bad the whole way there, once I was in the water I was fine. about 20 minutes after I had gotten out of the pool, it hit me again. However, the humidity outside was very high but the other people with me didnt seem to be that affected by it.

My sister recently had the same experience, but it wasnt from the heat. it was because she hadnt eaten anything. she has the same symptonms, sweating, everything going to dots, and then not being able to stand up and fall over.

I always thought it was becuase i hadnt eaten anything, that why i try to have a full meal for a big event or something. but me swimming kind of proved it was from the heat, and not just me having food. (who knows, it could be both)

Has anyone ever had the same experience? And do you think this is a serious problem that I need to go to a doctor about?

thanks for reading!
