Thank you for posting your query.
It is possible that your husband's symptoms are related to exertion and exhaustion. But there could be other reasons too. This is because the kind of activities that he did are usual routine activities.
We need to consider a gut infection such as flu
In any case, he needs rest and I expect him to improve in the next few days.
If not, he should be shown to his GP.
I hope it helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.
Wishing you good health,
