Contracted strep throat on 01/11 and after several rounds of antibiotics got rid of it. But started having problems with hands, joints swelling up and getting red. Also ran low grade temp. Resolved after a few months without further problems. Then in 10/11 contracted strep throat again this time with infection persisting and again having problems with swelling of hands, joints, redness swelling, heat and low grade temp occurs almost daily and makes me tired. On 12/04/11 had tonsils removed and had multiple problems ( throat infection that caused swelling and inability to swollow which led to asperation Pneumonia with multiple IV antibiotics then scabs falling off early and having to be recauterized). However still feel like something is stuck in my throat and continue to have problems with swelling, redness in joints, and flused redness on ears and chest as well as a low grade temp flare ups usually several times a day. Just frustratted and cant figure out the problem any suggestions? Am tired of going to MD and getting the same answer. Dont know whats going on. Please any info would be appreciated. Thanks again
