strange change after overheating

    A week ago on the Saturday of the August bank holiday weekend I was out in the blazing sun from just before noon to a little after 4pm.
    Due to the venue not supplying the things agreed, I was really short of anything to drink, a couple of pints of fluid were not adequate - I was even thinking of pouring the dog water bowls over my head.
    Eventually I went inside and sat at one of the tables and said I just had to have some water. Not only did I get a bottle, which I downed in a couple of minutes the server went outside to find my daughter to come to sit with me. I was well and truly roasted.
    The first thing I have noticed is my guts are unsettled - gurgling and loose, then I could not go to sleep at the usual time, now I have no appetite and have stopped eating in the mornings. I do not fancy the foods I usually eat. Yesterday I ate a cheese sandwich with livlife bread and a tomato and was awake all night. I went to sleep about 8 this morning.
    I noticed I was not drinking as much, not good in this heat, so now I am counting the glasses of water and have bought some low carb squash to encourage myself.
    My weight is not reducing despite the low intake of food. I don't feel ill or in any way odd - but the heat exhaustion has altered something.
    We really are an odd assemblage of components with some strange control mechanisms.

    I've been eating less, not feeling like food, then feeling bloated after eating. And I've put on 2lbs. Hopefully things are already settling down a little now.
