Sjogren's Syndrome Support

Sun exposure

Hi guys. I have recently been diagnosed with the following:
Current diagnosis:

Autoimmune Hepatitis

Inflammatory Polyarthritis

Primary biliary cirrhosis

Sjogren’s syndrome with keratoconjunctivitis sicca

Systemic disorders of connective tissue in other diseases classified elsewhere

I recently spent some time in the sun and am having some increased symptoms and pain. I was wondering if any of you experience this and what symptoms to you notice with sun exposure?

Anything that stresses your system could theoretically cause a flare up of symptoms. Or it might be completely unrelated.It’s so hard to tell. And there are medications that can make you sun sensitive too for an added bonus.

Thanks so much for the reply. Sounds like a double whammy.
