Hi. My feet turn bluish (once dark purple) when sitting and back to normal when walking. Look normal in the morning and start getting red and swollen toes when standing. Compression socks help with the blue color but not the redness of toes. On and off pain and burning spots on top of toes – best guess that skin is sensitive to pressure from other toes and shoes. Mild pins and needles on and off. Toe and foot cramps. When put feet up, feet turn bright red. Also freezing cold spots on random spots on legs. Hands turn red when down, turn normal color when up. Vascular doctor said not Raynaud’s after US exam – recommended the socks. Fingers getting very cold and hard to warm up. Painful even. Sometimes it hurts to type. Carpal tunnel? I have low blood pressure and have always been easily cold. Dad has varicose veins. Mom has MS. I also get dizzy after exercising, but have been very sedentary due to work and school. This is scaring me and I don’t know which doctor to see. Have a follow-up with vascular doctor for US for veins and a neurologist, but this is getting worse every day.
Medications: herbs and vitamins
General Information: I have anxiety and some depression. High functioning but many years of high stress.
