    Default Photosensitivity.. Effects?

    Hey ya'll, I was just wondering.. when it comes to photosensitivity, I find that when I'm in the sun for periods of time I get nausious (want to throw up a lot) and I get head-aches and dizzy and very faint, and of course, my butterflu rash is at it's reddest!
    Is this what you all go through as well?
    I also find that the pain in my joints is hightened a bit as well.

    Thanks in advance,

    - Bianca

    Hi Bianca!

    I get a malar rash when I go out into the sun and like you, I also get terrible headaches and feel weak, dizzy and faint. I also break out in Dermatitis (especially on my arms) when my skin is exposed to the sun.

    I hope that this helps!

    Keep well!

    Yup, that's about what I experience too. I know others have much more severe photosensitivity, though, so it pays to be cautious. Before I was diagnosed (I was already sick, but didn't know what it was) I was off work and spent a lot of time sitting on my deck in the sun (I always loved the sun.) NOT a good thing - I got sicker and sicker...who knew?!
