I talked to my rheumatologist about several instances of being in the sun and then feeling nauseated and tired...just generally 'sick' afterwards. She said, no that's not photosensitivity...she didn't know what that would be. She said photosentivity is just a skin thing - rash and sores after being in the sun. I don't know what to think about that. I really do get 'sick' sometimes after being in the sun. I don't have any significant skin involvement - no ulcers, no bumps. Just a malar rash sometimes (face, neck.) So, is my sun problem 'real' and part of lupus or is it just coincidental - maybe not really related to the sun or the disease at all? Makes me wonder if I'm imagining things..... Anyone have similar symptoms from the sun?
