Other medical problems can lead to symptoms similar to those encountered in heat stroke. These conditions should be excluded before establishing a definitive diagnosis of heat stroke:

  • Anxiety

  • Drug intoxication causing hyperactivity or seizures

  • Intense exercise

  • Fever

  • Hyperthyroidism (overactivity of the thyroid gland)

  • Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar concentration) resulting in seizures

  • Hypocalcemia (low blood calcium concentration) resulting in increased muscle activity or seizures)

  • Malignant hyperthermia (greatly increased body temperature)

  • Abnormality of the temperature regulation center in the hypothalamus of the brain

  • Seizures of any cause
