Hello Czimmerman

Does your wife usually do lifting as you stated with the garage sale?
Does she seem well hydrated? Are her mouth and eyes moist?

Thanks Czimmerman
You are working the poor woman to hard!
I believe this is a combination of the hard work, and the heat.
Working in the heat can cause the muscles to become slightly dehydrated. You are doing great taking care of her, by giving her rest and water. You may also want to give her something like Gatorade. This along with water can help replenish her electorates.

If she is going to be out again tomorrow have her drink plenty tonight.
Also, when you know ahead of time that you are going to be spending time in the heat, start hydrating the night before.

It is a done deal, thank you for a little peace of mind. I have since got her to drink a sports drink and is resting. She was thinking she was having a heart attack. She drank just water all day and by the end was not sweating, very flushed and hot. Heat exhaustion I think. She is mentaly better now with your opinion.

 

Thanks SM

Expert:  Smoore replied 5 years ago.
If she did stop sweating then she should stay inside tomorrow. Give herself time to recover.
Woman usually present much different than men do with a heart attack. If she was having shortness of breath, nausea, light-headedness or pain in the chest, then I would be concerned. But the arm and hand pain should pass by tomorrow.
