She is 23 years old. It started with a rash two weeks ago, and for the last week everything was swolen so for about two weeks now she has had this symptoms. It is the joints at her hands, knees and ankles, she says that it is very painfull, so that she can't even bend her fingers. The blood tests only showd that she does't have tick fever but that she has too many monosites, and too little white blood cells.
