Did the sun do this?

Hi all!

I was diagnosed with lupus in 2007 and have been relatively well since then. I take Plaquenil twice daily and Provigil for fatigue. I really haven't had any symptoms other than achy joints and fatigue.

Over the weekend I spent quite sometime outdoors. I am now experiencing what I call the flu. Achy all over, sore throat, slight headache, and very low-grade fever 99.0. Could this be from being in the sun? I have never felt like this before (other than the flu). I also had the flu shot this year and no other family member is ill. Any help is appreciated!
