In brief: Not normal

There are a few types of allergic reaction.
Joint pain is a manifestation of an allergic reaction mediated by igg, an antibody. A different antibody, ige, is the mediator of the form of allergy we are most familiar with: immediate itching, hives, runny or watery nose/eyes and sometime leading to anaphylaxis.

In brief: Yes

Yes, certain types of allergic reactions can cause swelling of tissues and joints (the medical term for this type of reaction is "serum sickness").
One can experience joint pains in such reactions. Ordinary allergic conditions like nasal and eye allergies are not associated with joint pains unless you have other concomitant condition like fever resulting from a viral or bacterial infection.
