I had strep throat last october ( I get it every year) but this time it was really bad, I had a 104 fever for about 3 days ( I am 31) about 3 weeks later I started having extreme joint pain I couldnt even stand up or put on my bra, pain was mostly in wrists and ankles. I got beter after about 6 months but now I am starting to get joint pain again, not as sever but still anoying. I feel like my joints in my hands are stiff, and now I am experiancing alot of back pain up by my neck. My migraines are getting more frequent and upset stomach alot. If I eat anything I feel bloated all day! I am tired alot too. Please help. My doctor thought I had rhumatic fever, but said he couldnt be sure
