:confused:My boyfriend's skin color turns dark reddish-purple on his legs, torso, and hands, sometimes after exercise, sometimes just sitting around. When I press on it with a fingertip the impression turns bright white and goes away in a few seconds. The skin is always warm like normal, not cold. He's had a spinal/neck injury about 10 yrs ago and chronic pain since. I'm not sure if that's part of the problem or it these coloration symptoms are from somthing else. I seem to remember reading about these symptoms somewhere but cant remember if it was heart related, circulatory related, or what. Anyone heard of this?
