For many years I am facing a very annoying problem that no doctor can help me with. Once in 2-3 weeks I wake up in the morning with a small red, hot and swollen area in the palm, on the foot or on a finger. If I take Aulin (Nimesulide) I get rid of the pain in 2-3 hours but if I don't do anything then the pain goes away after 2-3 days. The blood tests point to a small bacterial infection in the body, but there is no way to find out which bacteria is causing it. I made the HLAB24 test and it's ok, I made hepatitis and tuberculosis tests and they are ok, I made the VSH test (sedimentation rate) and it's ok. These problems used to show up once in a few months a few years ago but now they are more and more often.

Thank you.
