Sounds like you and I had the same appointment. I just saw one of my ER docs today. Got some blood work done and was told not to workout for a week....yeah right! As long as I don't hang upside down very long I should be ok. I'm working for the next 36 hours so I wont be doing many WOD's anyhow.
It also runs in my family.
Vasoline works well while your having the nose bleed, just pack a bunch up there and it slows it down.
I had to get a Rhino Rocket for a few hours today. It was over and hour of bleeding so my co-workers put one in....it is not fun! http://www.buyemp.com/product/11229699.html
