  • I never noticed, but I would guess that it's not the sun but the change in environmental climate, dust, pollen, etc..

    Lol...sounds like our little brains can't handle the stress of the sun. LOL. I'm with you though. I do it all the time.

  • It could be a sign of histadelia (high histamine levels in the body) and it is due to the geo magnetic forces of the sun.
