Avatar f tn What other symptoms are associated with the joint pain, sore throat and hives 5. Does the rash coincide with the joint pain. 6. Have you had the symptoms before? If so how many times and how long did they last If the symptoms have persisted for more than 5-7 days that I would consider going back to the health care provider and emphasize the points above.
Avatar m tn It has given me some ear discomfort, but not any swelling. Had strep throat tests 3 times during the first 4 weeks, and all came back neg. Was prescribed Amoxicillin first, then Avelox, then Omnicef with steriods. Nothing has worked. Also had some joint pain in front of my right ear at the jaw joint...causing bad headaches. Also had a layer of white stuff on my tongue off and on for a month.
Avatar f tn My question... could I have given myself strep throat (or another kind of throat infection) by giving oral sex after vaginial intercourse. This in something I have hardly ever done (ie oral sex after intercourse) but now I have strep throat. I haven't gone to the doctor, just started amoxicillian I have here (four kids) and it has cleared up (also a rash on my face) in a few days. Is it a coincidence or do I need to avoid this act in the future.
Avatar m tn 19 Years old, and have random joint pain in wrist, shoulders, and knees. I can't sleep until I am absolutely exhausted, like an old man in church, whose head is starting to bob. I usually have to crawl out of bed to pee before I can sleep, and its a really small urination. What is wrong with me?
Avatar m tn The problem with an untreated strep throat is that it can lead to kidney problems called strep nephritis which can permanently damage the kidneys. Also, it can lead to rheumatic fever which can affect the heart valves. And it can also cause severe joint pain to the point where walking becomes difficult, fingers become swollen. My son had strep nephritis and I had the rheumatic fever and joint pain.
Avatar f tn I recently had strep throat but since my throat was not sore it was not treated and then went to strep reactive artritis. This all started with pain in my ankles and knees. Within a week I had pain in all joints. It was not always in one joint, moved around a bit. By Sat I was unable to hold a pop can without trouble and opening doors was very painful so I went to the ER and from the blood tests they did they found my strep level was at 200.
Avatar f tn I have had strep throat 4 times in the last 5 months. 2 and a half months ago I started getting arthritis with my 3rd case of strep. I had what looked like the beginning of a rash. My first strep I was given amox for 10days, 2nd was given penacillin for 10days, 3rd was given clyndamycin for 10days.
Avatar n tn At this time (now 3 weeks after initial onset of symptoms) I begin to get joint pain and mucle aches but more prominent in my joints. Also my lymh nodes under both my arms are swollen and tender/ painful to touch. The new Dr orders more blood work including Kidney, Thyroid, Liver, ASOT, urine culture and sensitivity and general blood work. The results come back in. Everything seems fine accept for my ASOT titres which have elevated back up to 576.
Avatar f tn Help! I have been having traveling joint pain for about two months now. I think this all started when I got a really bad strep throat infection. About two weeks after the infection pasted I started getting bad burning pains in my wrists when I move them (especially flexing them up or down) It was so bad I couldn't get dressed by myself in the morning) I started wrapping my wrist and that seemed to help.
Avatar f tn Our pediatriacian thought maybe the joint pain may have been caused by strep throat. So we had a strep culture, and there were still antibodies in his throat (Assuming because he had strep throat weeks before that was undetected). The culture was positive, however our son had only had 1 day of sore throat with a short fever 4 weeks prior to this throat culture. The doctor then wanted our 3 yr old to give blood to look or Rheumatoid factor and Titre tests, so we did that today.

Avatar n tn She went to see her pediatrician three weeks ago with the latest episode of strep throat and was treated for two weeks with Augmentin. But I am wondering if she could have had strep a few months ago undetected and that led to the rash, joint pains etc. What are the diagnostic criteria for Rheumatic fever? What should I ask the pediatricin to evaluate? I did express my concern about Rheumatic fever at our last office visit and he assured me that is was rare.
Avatar m tn i have been sick for about 9 weeks now symptoms are (in order of happeninf) rash, fever, headaches, tired, body aches, swollen hands and feet (extreme), joint pain, lumps in necks, muscle pain, sore throat, various infections tested and negative for the following: hiv, hepatitis, parvo, lymes, cronic fatigue, RA, lupus, autoimmune (no ana present), strep blood work showed very low WBC, low RBC, high sed rate, high c reactive protein, very low vitamin d, please help
Avatar f tn The only way to confirm that you have strep throat is by a throat culture (or rapid strep test) in your doctor's office. Even if you do, it's probably a good idea to continue using your CPAP, since having inflammation in your throat will worsen your sleep apnea. In most cases, what feels just like strep (pain, difficulty swallowing) is usually not due to the specific strain of strep that we test for (Group A beta-hemolytic). Many other conditions can give you the same symptoms.
Avatar n tn I have been having joint pain, severe in my leg side of body, arm and leg, and then both sides of my wrists, fingers, and ankles. It's now in my right knee as well. I have had just an overall ache in my legs and left arm. (I did have a total shoulder make over on my left side, Jan 2012 due to a trauma in 2008. I had a bicep tendonesis, SLAP, and a clavicular resection of half my acromium.
Avatar m tn If so then the virudans strep could also be the problem and viridans strep are more resistant to antibiotics. But I would check with your doctor on this and see if the Strep group B and Viridans strep were sensitive to Levoflaxacin. If they are it may be a suitable substitute. Why do you want to stop the Ciprofloxacin or switch? Do you have another problem you want to treat in addition to the urinary tract infection and prostate or is the cipro not working?
Avatar f tn I recently had strep throat but since my throat was not sore it was not treated and then went to strep reactive artritis. I was on Penicilin for 20 days and 800 Ibuprofen twice daliy. I am now on 800 Ibuprofen and 50mg of Minocycline twice daily for a undetermined amount of time. I had severe pain for the first 3 weeks and the last two have been getting better. So far this week the only problem to remain is in the joints of my fingers and hands.
Avatar f tn Hi , today when I woke up my throat started hurting and it was like tickling my throat or something because it was making me cough. and it's kind of hard to swallow. do you know what I could possibly have ?
Avatar f tn So me and my mom went to the doctors, they said I had a strep throat and gave me penicillin for that, but after a day my right ear started to hurt so much I couldn't sleep. It felt like I could hear my own heartbeat through it, but was really loud. A sharp pain would also go through my jaw and it felt like someone was pinching the inside of my ear. The doctors told me to get Tylenol 1 for it but that didn't work either, I'm only 15 years old does anyone know how to help me?

Avatar f tn Then most of the flu symtoms went away except sore throat and stuffy nose and the rash started spreadind around my stomach and i started to have minor pains in my abdomen and stomach.I went back to the doctor again and they did blood work to check for mono that came back negative and she said everything was perfect.Then some time later sore throat went away but came back oddly.
Avatar n tn Last month I suffered a week and a half of severe whole body muscle contractions. The contractions were not constant, although they came and went very frequently during the day and night. I could barely walk due to the severity of the muscle contractions. These contractions came on suddenly in my legs, then stomach and back, then up to my neck causing my chin to point upward and my head to shake severely.
Avatar m tn So I went back to my doctor again today and she took a throat culture and blood test. My doctor is confused, so please if anyone knows why this is happeneing pleae tell me.
Avatar n tn Strep sore throat needs to be treated with an antibiotic as strep is a bacteria. Viral sore throat is best treated with rest, warm oral fluids and (OTC) tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen for pain. If you develop a fever, or if there is enlargement of the tonsils with pain or if there is white coating on the tonsils, you will need to consult your primary care physician for a strep test, which if positive you will be given antibiotics. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar m tn I had a wicked case of prostatitis and joint pain etc. for the 1st time in my life that started a little more than a month after a nasty strep throat that was cultured as S. Pyogenes. It took a few months to resolve. I think there is absolutely a connection after reading up and seeing how many people have asked this same question after it has happened to them. When you look at how the kidneys and heart have post strep complications why couldn't it happen elsewhere?
