Are Disorientation And Dizziness Symptoms Of A Heat Stroke?

I was putt-putt golfing today, HHi SC. I bent down and my left eye crossed ,I got disoriented for 10 seconds ,dizzy and stumbled. I sat in the sun for 10 minutes and my eye strawberries tightened out and about 45 mins later I felt okay. Are these symptoms of a heat stroke?

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

No I am afraid it is not the symptoms of sun stroke but it could be due to hypoglycemia but the redness of eye is not likely, it could be allergic condition, or it may be due to hot whether, I would advise you to get done the plasma glucose test else it is nothing to worry.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
