I was just diagnosed with Lupus and RA. I have gotten a rash from the sun for years but never knew what it was from. Today I was outside for a little while (not long at all) and tonight I feel horrible. Headache, sore throat, chills. I don't know if I'm getting sick or if this could be from the sun. Does anyone else ever get these symptoms? I do not go back to the doctor for a couple of weeks and am still trying to figure this all out.

Sounds like you're having a reaction to the sun.
Are you wearing sun protective clothing?
I'm very photosensitive and feel terrible if I'm exposed to UV rays.
I have to wear long sleeves, long pants, gloves, and a hat when I go outside the house.
I get my sun protective clothing from coolibar.com.

I was wearing sunscreen but not sun protective clothing. I will definitely check out that site. Thanks!

Sunscreen is not enough for me. I wind up sweating it off. You can't sweat off the clothing. ;-)
