Ongoing Throat Pain

Hello.
In 2007, I had a number of strep infections. That was alright until around last December, when I had a serious infection of strep and prescribed Pondocillin. (It had a lion on the pill)
Now, I have throat pain all the time.
I've went to the doctor and had a blood test for mono which came back negative, and have been tested numerous times for strep while not experiencing symptoms to see if I was a strep carrier. All have came back negative. In February 2008, the doctor felt my lymph nodes and they were quite swelled. He checked my right ear which always hurt when I had strep and he found it a bit red. I received antibiotic ear drops. They reduced the redness but the lymph nodes were still swelled.
I'm on a waiting list for a CT scan but has anyone been experiencing these symptoms?
Or heard of some illness with these symptoms?
Thank you for reading and your help. :)
