Hello, I have recently developed very strong symptoms of arthritis, it runs in my family etc. It has all kind of got a lot worse in the last few weeks, after months of still legs, now I have multiple pains, my knee is very painful and keeps giving way etc etc. I now think I have strep throat, is it possible to get strep throat after or at the time arthritis starts? I cant get tests done yet. Thanks so much for your help. Im

    Welcome to Arthritis Care Forums, imogen113, from the moderation team.

    I am very sorry to hear you have developed signs of arthritis in multiple joints as well as having a family history of it. I hope you will be seeing your GP soon for diagnosis, you say you can’t have tests yet so in the meantime here is a link to the Arthritis Care information on diagnosis which might help you:

    Regarding your mention of your throat, take a look at the 2nd page of this thread:

    Hi Imogen 113,

    Welcome to the forum from the Helplines team.

    I see Ellen has given a very helpful response to your enquiry. The only things I can add are to say that the Helplines team is here (via this forum, email or phone) to give more information once you have a diagnosis. In the meantime, we could be glad to offer support and a listening ear if you wanted to talk things over.

    Best wishes,
