"My ankles swell up occasionally also, dr's dont know why all tests are normal. My hands and feet are always swollen first thing in the morning, but my ankles just puff up out of the blue for no apparent reason."

He wants me to see a cardiologist now-- which is fine, because I know I need to!-- but it also has me a little worried.
