hello,i'm kev. I came across your letter and wanted to respond.I too have the same problem. being told i was in the sun when i was not.Also had a lot of pain in the joints especially in the legs(and hands) to where i had difficuty walking. On and off the medrol pack too. 1 1/2 year later and a lot of pain i was diagnosed with Lupus(SLE)an auto-immune disease.NOT saying that you have it ,that was my experience. it is compared to rheumatoid arthritis. and the "sunburn" was called Raynouds syndrome that accompanies lupus Which makes the skin red and affects the blood flow to the extemities especially in the cold. that was a few years ago. with proper meds i am now walking 5 mi. a day for exercise and dropped 25 lbs.!! Don't mean to scare you or give medical advise i just wanted to share my simalar symptoms and the diagnosis.i hope they (docs) figure it out for you. Feel free to e-mail me if you would like if i can help. take care, kev.
