All my symptoms started after being on a 2 week antibiotic course for swollen tonsils (were swollen for over a yr!). It started with left elbow joint pain, the pain slowly migrated to muscles around the elbow, and after a month I started to experience pain in both my knee joints and muscles in the leg. The pain is a type of a burning type of pain. The knee joint pain disappears as soon as I start walking but my elbow joint pain gets worse with use. Recently I have started experiencing pain in random joints which soon disappears like the wrist and interphalangeal joints.

  • I have got an appointment with an immunologist tomorrow, going to have some basic blood tests done, if the tests are inconclusive will be off to a rheumatologist later on in the week, will report back on the progress.
