Remmiting Symetrical Seronegative Synovitis with Pitting Edema. my legs swell so much i can put deep indentations in them, beyond 4+++, and they will stay for about an hour. i do not always have that much, but always some. my arms and hands too, and i have nodules in my feet, and toes & fingers. does anyone know about this disease?
