Why does being out in the sun make me so sick?

I don't understand this.. I just cannot go out into the sun for more than an hour MAX.. otherwise I get very lethargic and feel like I have severe flu. We went to six flags on Friday and by that evening and all day yesterday and still today I feel like all my energy is drained. I feel sick and tired and keep falling asleep. I do this every single time we do anything in the sun. Am I a freak?!?! Why can't I enjoy things like everyone else???

Re: Why does being out in the sun make me so sick?

I get ill if I'm stuck out in the sun all day. I've learned my limits, a day at six flags is fine so long as I can spend a lot of time in the shade and drink a lot. If I rush about and sit out in the full sun I'm so sick, I'll get a migraine and feel like I've been on a cross country car ride for a couple of days. That horible car sick woosey feeling.

yes I did have a awful headache that wouldn't go away for hours.. I did drink a lot of fluids and we did seek shade for the baby often. I hope by tomorrow I perk up again.. I just feel so bad.

Re: Why does being out in the sun make me so sick?

I was trying to google to see if it was connected to my grave's disease, but I'm not seeing a connection.. I see that people with lupus can though.. I used to see a rheumatologist that thinks I have lupus (SLE).. but, according to my endoc the reason I have such a high positive ANA is from having the Grave's disease. I have no rashes or anything.. I just feel sicker than a dog.. super tired, I feel feverish, and nauseated... no energy at all. I woke up at 9am, and I think I'm going to take a nap now.

If you're staying hydrated and seeking shade often and you still feel that way I'd say a trip to the doctor is in order.

My bet would be dehydration. Your body needs a LOT of water to function well, especially in the heat and sun. Way more than most people think. Try hydrating way more than you think is necessary and see if it helps!
