Bad things. When your blood is circulating too hot, it affects everything. Your internal organs are stressed, as well as your brain. (which is why it's dangerous to have a high fever for very long) Your muscles start burning anything they can to function instead of oxygen, which results in them producing lactic acid. (that's why after you exercise you feel that burn) The body uses up all the liquids it can, taking them from needed functions. It's a dangerous state to be in--for short.

Some of the bad things are: dizzyness,headache.hurts to do anything,and you don't even want to open your eyes. If you do overheat just sit or lie down until you feel better. when you do get up you will feel a little dizzy still but don't worry that's normal.
