The core symbol of heatstroke is an obviously raised body temperature — normally more than 1040 F (400 C) — with changes in mental status extending from personality alterations to confusion and unconsciousness. Skin may be dry and hot — though if heatstroke is produced by sweat, the skin may be damp.
