Hi,

I spent all of last sunday out in my friend's backyard. I didn't think it was that sunny out, but ever since I've been all kinds of pain in a really bad flare-up. It's never happened to me before. Has anyone else had this happen?

Thanks

Hello @mvn481, thank you for opening this discussion. I'm sorry to hear you're in pain! Let me tag some other members who can possibly share with you.

Hi everyone, how are you today?

Have you found that your lupus makes you sensitive to the sun (photosensitive)? If so, how does it affect you? What kinds of symptoms do you experience? How do you handle it?
