It may sound funny but sweating too much can be a dangerous thing. Heat exhaustion happens when you are sweating so much that you have extreme loss of electrolytes. Heat exhaustion symptoms can vary depending on how serious it is. It is the result of your body getting too hot.

Some people may experience extreme amounts of sweating and others may not experience sweating at all. Your heart will beat very very quickly and some people may experience headache and nausea. The worst kind of heat exhaustion is called heat stroke. Heat stroke is life threatening and the symptoms are a fever and unconsciousness.
