Reoccurrence of head stroke. Having light headedness and dizziness. Suggest

Hi so I have a 17 year old son and about 8 years ago he had a heatstroke. It took a long while for him to recover . So now the symptoms are coming back. He is having light headedness, dizziness, feeling like he is going to black out. I'm trying to keep him cool and drinking lots if fluids. He is going through a break up and has been a little depressed so it might be a part of this sudden reoccurrence? Wht do you suggest?

hi thee, thanks for asking. Depression and heat stroke are not related to each other. The only thing which may be a factor is that depression causes less appetite and feeling of thirst, so the people who are depressed, may drink less water. It makes them more vulnerable to heat stroke. I wish him and the family a good health.
