I do! It's sun sensitivity. I have to coat myself in 100 SPF lotion, wear sun protection clothing, and a sun hat. If I'm going to be outside for awhile I have a sun umbrella (two different sizes-beach size and personal size). Even then I don't stay longer than two hours with all that protection. I'm looking for some sungloves now.
You also need to watch out for fluorescent lighting and stores that with fluorescent lighting/skylights.
What kills me is today I had to go through my summer clothes today and toss all of my capris and shorts. No more going to the beaches for me -so out goes my bathing suits. I got diagnosed last summer with lupus and was in denial about the sun sensitivity that summer. I've found since I've been more protective of myself my pains are less than last year.
