yes you can, and strep is a very common cause of laryngitis. I would also suggest you start taking vitamin c to boost your immune system, and whenever a doctor puts you on antibiotics, start taking a probiotic for at least a few weeks afterwards, although some times you may have to take them for longer because antibiotics are terrible for causing yeast infections (thrush)
From your symptoms, you have some type of throat infection (since you recently had strep it's probably the same infection), and it may have worked it's way down to your chest also. once you get this this treated most of your symptoms should disappear. The pinched neck/arm pain are unlikely to be related.
