How do u know if u have strep throat?

you will wake up like I did with a pain in your throat like you have not experienced before, its not like a normal sore throat from a cold or whatever, its painful to talk and especially painful to swallow, even water is difficult, you will feel miserable and tired, but the pain in the throat will keep you awake, you will have to keep your fluids up or you can get dehydrated , go and see a doctor they can examine you, take a swab and give you antibiotics.

some symptoms are your throat hurting, with a headache

i would go to your doctor, and have them swab your throat, to be sent to the lab

Hi. You don't. The only way that it can be properly diagnosed is through a throat culture done at your doctor's office.

Some symptoms are: severe sore throat, a fever, being extremely tired.

However, again, you cannot know for certain. It needs to be run through a lab, and then you will be prescribed an antibiotic by your physician.

If you have strep throat, you will have trouble eating because it is very painful to swallow.

The only true way is for a doctor to do a throat culture, but I know when my kids have it because when I look down their throat I see white spots. Sometimes at the end of their tongue is a more reddish part also. My kids get it a lot and I did as a kid, so I can spot it a mile away :)

Well when I was littler I had it (*ALL THE TIME*) probably the most likely symptoms would be (1. sore throat (2. fever (3.aching all over (4. sleepy/drowsy (5. red throat (inside)!

sore throat and fever

GO TFC!!!!!!!
Ok. So, and I Quote from the textbook:

"Strep throat is a bacterial infection of the throat. It is spread by droplets coughed or breathed or sneezed into the air. Symptoms may include a sore throat, fever, a general feeling of illness, and enlarged lymph nodes on the neck. An untreated strep throat infection may lead to serious complications such as inflammation of the kidneys or rheumatic fever, which can cause permanent heart damage. Strep throat can be cured with antibiotics."

The sooner you get it treated, the better. See the symptoms section above.
Hope this helps :)
