The science behind why it works

While it hasn’t been proven yet, researchers posit that pickle juice may help cramps by triggering muscular reflexes when the liquid contacts the back of the throat.

This reflex shuts down the misfiring of neurons in muscle all over the body, and “turns off” the cramping feeling. It’s thought that it’s specifically the vinegar content in pickle juice that does this.
That was my first thought - vagus nerve stimulation. Cattle prod to the solar plexus would probably work too. Bet that'll work for intractable hiccups too.
Ya can thank me later.

Maybe for now until temps cool down go with shortened hours, starting early before it gets warmer during the day? I know you love what you do, this must be frustrating for you.

It is frustrating, all of the sudden out of nowhere misery, age does sneak up on you. Cooler today only worked half a day no issues, forecast looks good for the next 7 days almost Fall like. I do love what I do and will do it in a more reasonable manner.
