Overdid it today

Spent the entire afternoon power washing my downstairs concrete patio, upstairs deck and siding. About 5 hours in I started feeling dizzy. Next thing I remember is a hot paramedic asking me how I felt.

Apparently the sun became too much and according to my daughter I passed out, vomited and had a seizure. Not sure what order.

I've never had any health problems. Perfect health my entire life, rarely ever even get sick. This scared the shit out of me. (figuratively)

Sounds like a pleasant place to live.

Freshly squeezed lemons into some water will help the body rehydrate more effectively than just water.

You are lucky you didn't have a sun stroke or maybe you did and just didn''t know it. My father years ago had a sun stroke and didn't realize it till much later. That day he just felt sick, nauseas, dizzy and severe chills for the next 24-48hrs. From that day on he could never handle any kind of heat outside. Hopefully your paramedics/doctors have ruled that out.

Yep, you gotta be careful and just make sure you stay hydrated if you are working outside. They say it's best to drink water or gatorade or whatever before you feel thirsty, don't wait until after you are thirsty. For me, my problem is it takes me a long time to feel thirsty so I tend to dehydrate without even knowing it, and this sounds like what happened to MTG# 10

Remember Gatorade only replenishes your electrolytes and will not hydrate you completely. For every oz. of Gatorade you must drink and oz. of water. 50/50 ratio. Many a person has over heated just drinking Gatorade alone without complementing with water. Just a heads up.

This for sure helps immensely. Got to get into shape not only physically but psychologically as well.

You got to be sensible about the heat. If you work inside a office then you best go slowly acclimating to heat till you build your tolerance. If all a sudden your not sweating any longer get water drink and also cool yourself with a damp dew rag. This is a warning of heat exhaustion along with babbling incoherently. The later you wont know only if your working along side someone. The next step is heat stroke thats cramps followed by seizures dont go there stay hydrated.

My doc says men think they are camels and dont drink enough water. You very rarely hear about women passing kidney stones men all the time. In 1980 during the heat wave where we went 17 days over 100 then cooled a day at 99 and went another 10 days I had heat exhaustion but was lucky my crew chief recognized it at time got me to the truck and water pulled under shade tree and let me set till I wasnt babling any more then took me back to office. At home I started stomach cramps and verious muscle cramps my body. I should have gone hospital but took next day off and just drowned myself with water.

Every since that when we are working heat miles from work truck I strap the 5 gallon Gott water keg on a backpack frame and consider it just a part of regular tools we need for the work. Its better than carrying a co-worker and hoofing it back to truck.

That makes no sense, which is surprisingly less sense than usual.

To be out in I will take the cold anyday. I can dress for it and shed what I dont need as the sun warms it up out. Not a damn thing really you can do for the heat but get out of it. A cold bandanna around neck helps though.
