we all seem to have fallen prey to a virus that starts with sore throat then tummy troubles. I have now gone on to having aching joints (sore throat etc gone now) Have made an appointment with docs tomorrow as starting to get worried that I am getting arthritis or something! Or could this all be viral ?

dd2 (aged 7) had tonsillitis which then caused arthritis type pains in her wrists and knees 3 weeks later because the infection didn't go away completely. 10 days on antibiotics did the trick. Hope you feel better soon

I had a virus a few weeks ago which began with a sore throat and really aching limbs and joints...I wouldn't worry too much, it is a common symptom.
