Please help, after 2 years I still have no diagnosis both of my ankles have discoloration and sometimes almost purple looking it is starting to go up both of my legs. When I go to stand up sometimes my feet don't want to work until I get moving then its better. There is no ankle swelling. Now for the last two weeks my left hand has numbness in the little finger and the 2 next to it. Please help.

  • You might want to start with a basic CT scan of the brain to check for brain abnormalities, then go to a neurologist with the scans and have them run tests.

  • I'm no doctor but it just sounds like poor circulation for some reason. You could also check out Reynauds Syndrom. My mom has it.

  • That is really strange. As the post above suggested, perhaps it would be useful to bring your case to a neurologist. Especially since you are having trouble in your hands, now. Please post back when you see a neuro, and let us know what they say.Best,Shula
