Does anyone have problems with light sensitivity? I used to be able to spend days outdoors and never get sunburned. Believe it or not I got sunburned outdoors in about three hours in March in North Dakota. I am not sure if it is a side effect from all my meds or if it too is something new for me to deal with.

I've always burned easily so I can't help you there, I'm fair skinned.

Some medications do make you sensitive to the sun.

Here is an article that go into detial about meds

I had a new problem with the sun last summer. When I went back to the midwest for treatment, we did alot of driving. The extreme sunlight would make my eyes spasm. I only had relief when I wore my sunglasses.

I do have light sensitivity but it is more like I squint when the light goes on, I can't see well driving or walking in the bright light. I'm not on medication so I have to look into eye problems. The kind of light sensitivity you speak of sounds like it is related to the medicine you may be on. Check with the doctor or pharmacy. Stay in the shade till you figure it out! tearose
