| | raynauds and foot ulcers
For about 2 months I have had these painful subcutaneous red and purple marks on the bottoms of my toes, and on the ball of my feet.My feet are also very swollen, and a purple blue color a lot of the time. I went to 2 rheumi's, both of whom said I have Raynauds, and gave me Prednisone 20mg, and Procardia 30mg. The swelling went down, but my feet are still bluish purple, and the marks are still there. I don't have another appointment until next month. Is it only me, or isn't it bad to have purple feet?? These doc's don't seem to be too worked up about it. My friend suggested I see a vascular surgeon. My blood tests were okay last time. Yesterday, they took new ones. The ulcers are sooo painful. Help!!! Does anyone else have this problem??
