Joint pain related to allergic reaction?

Patient : I was put on Amoxacillin 500mg TID X 10 days due to strep throat and a sinus infection, after 8 days on the Amoxacillin, I broke out in hives and swelling, mostly localized to my extremities, upper back and neck- I saw a doctor and was told to stop the antibiotics because I was having an allergic reaction. The hives took about 4 days to clear up, but once the hives were gone I started experiencing migrating joint pain in my hands and fingers for about 5days. My joints are painful with any movement as well as pain with palpating. My question is, would this migrating joint pain be caused by allergic reaction I had to the Amoxacillin?
