Yes Hello...I remember you too. First rheumy told my brother that his swollen ankles were just from the heel spurs. He obviously didn't want to bother with my brother. Therefore, my brother went back to the foot dr. and he said that he needs to go get a second opinion and gave him a list of diseases that he wants him to be tested for. Again, the not knowing is worse than knowing. When I heard he had a nose bleed last night, I read up on it today and it said it could be a symptom before a flare up. THe only thing is that my brother's feet really swelled and became painful when because he was watching his daughter who has reflux(4 months old) and had to clean his house because he had a Christening party. All day Sunday he was in pain with his feet during his daughter's Christening and then that evening got the nosebleed. I'm just happy to hear from both of you that you never heard of this being a symptom. THat gives me hope. T hanks and I'll keep you posted.
