YES For several years I had early symptoms of rheumatiod arthritis. I was also scared of the sun, always using sunscreen and never going out in the middle of the day. On the advice of a close friend I gradually started exposing myself to midday sun and improving my vitamin D level. After one season of sun exposure I had a mild tan, dramatically increased energy level and feeling of wellbeing, and best of all, no signs of the arthritis!
