Patient :Hello. Yesterday I woke up with a head ache and a sore throat. Today I was told I have strep throat. This makes sense some what to me but what bothers me is the fact that my head ache hasn't gone away and has worsened. My neck hurts a lot, even to move. My back hurts and I have muscle pain. Is this normal for strep throat? What should I do? Advil had virtually no affect.
