The only way to confirm that you have strep throat is by a throat culture (or rapid strep test) in your doctor's office. Even if you do, it's probably a good idea to continue using your CPAP, since having inflammation in your throat will worsen your sleep apnea. In most cases, what feels just like strep (pain, difficulty swallowing) is usually not due to the specific strain of strep that we test for (Group A beta-hemolytic). Many other conditions can give you the same symptoms.
