Hi Everyone,

Here's my story: my two girls had rashes, one on her face the other girl had it on her arms for about 3 days. I finally took both to the Dr. (no other symptoms) and they both tested positive for strep. I asked their Dr. to test me and I tested negative. She put both girls on Amoxicillin. The next morning I woke up with a rash all over my body, no other symptoms. I went right in to my Dr. because I was worried maybe I had strep too. He put me on Amoxicillin and ran a throat culture. 2 hours later, my neck became extremely stiff. The next morning, more stiff joints so I went back to the Dr. and he ordered blood tests. Nothing has come back yet (throat culture nor bloodwork). But I am in so much pain all I can do is cry. Does it sound like 5ths? I called my Dr. this morning (Monday after an extremely painful weekend) and am going back in at 11:00. I'm going to ask for the 5th's test. My concern is that, if it is 5ths, no one on this board seems to have it just for a week or so. Everyone has it for months! Is there anyone who can say "mine just lasted a few days to a week?". I really just want some hope. I also hope it is 5ths because everything else I look up seems long-term serious. Thank you and I wish fast recoveries for all!!
