The meaning of some phrases

I am unclear on the meaning of two phrases within this test (Google translate didn't help too much)

1. un coup de soleil carabiné

2. sache que j'en bave vraiment

Could someone explain the meaning of these? Thanks

Hi Megan,

1. J'ai pris un coup de soleil carabiné

= I have an almighty sunburn 

you can say it of a cold or headache ( then probably,  stinking and filthy might work better)

e.g.

J'ai un rhume/ un mal de tête carabiné 

2. Sache que j'en bave vraiment 

just be aware that I am really suffering 

Hope this helps!

Thanks to WordReference.com: 1. carabiné = raging, ferocious 2. en baver = suffer, have a hard time of it
