Jacqueline Jossa says she's convinced she's got heat stroke after being left 'exhausted' by hot weather
JACQUELINE Jossa was left convinced she had heat stroke after being left "exhausted" by the hot weather.
The mum-of-two shared her fears on Instagram last night as temperatures in Britain were hotter than Cairo in the 36C heatwave.
Dan Osborne's wife pretended to cry as she said: "This weather is a killer I've had to come and sit inside. I've put clothes on because I've got a zoom call literally in 10 minutes.
"Had I not have had the zoom call I would be nacked. Continously, all day. It's just unbearable.
"I feel exhausted. I think I've got heat stroke or something. I'm just so hot. It's just too much."
Jacqueline later shared a snap of her kids Mia and Ella huddled inside to stay out of the heat.
She returned to social media this morning and shared a tired snap from inside her car, writng "morning all!".
Heat stroke is a serious condition that can be life-threatening and normally occurs in hot weather. It can also happen when a person has been doing strenuous physical exercise.
When someone has heat stroke, their body is no longer able to cool itself – and their temperature becomes dangerously high.
Yesterday, the Met Office said temperatures had reached 34.6C in central London – marking the first time since 1961 that there had been six consecutive days of 34C and above.
If someone you know is showing signs of heat exhaustion, you need to cool them down.
- Move them to a cool place.
- Get them to lie down and raise their feet slightly.
- Get them to drink plenty of water. Sports or rehydration drinks are OK.
- Cool their skin – spray or sponge them with cool water and fan them. Cold packs around the armpits or neck are good, too.
Heat stroke is potentially life-threatening, and needs to be treated by medical professionals.
You should call 999 if the person:
- Is still feeling unwell after 30 minutes of resting in a cool place and drinking plenty of water
- Is not sweating even though too hot
- Has a temperature of 40C or above
- Has fast breathing or shortness of breath
- Is feeling confused
- Has a fit (seizure)
- Experiences loss of consciousness
- Is not responsive
Keep giving first aid, as detailed above, while you wait for the ambulance.
And put them in the recovery position if they lose consciousness.
Heat stroke can be very serious if not treated quickly.
