i have a question

I was diagnosed with raynauds phenomenon about a year ago, but I have this problem for some time now. I am alarmed by something that happened last night and would love to know it is very normal. Since I don't know much about it (by other experience). Last night I was in the back room sitting.. My legs became heavy feeling and all of a sudden they turned purple all the way up to my hips. Obviously I couldn't feel a thing. I was not cold, very much felt warm.. but did notice something very strange. My legs and feet was very swollen, and my feet to my ankles were like a deep burgundy color while the rest up was blue. It was so weird looking.

I had called the office today to get a refill on my meds, and didn't say anything to them about. My husband did take photo's because he was pretty alarmed as I was. To comfort my own mind I would like to know this is normal so I can go on.. lol

Thanks

Re: i have a question

Thanks, jenj770.

I am going to wait til I go to Cleveland Clinic which is in a couple days. I do not trust the doctors around here. A friend of mine that works for my doctor tells me it is normal (she is not a nurse), but I don't think it is either. My father went to the VA hospital talking to his doctor about me. I guess he was concerned. She even said it wasn't normal and asked when i was going to see a doctor preferable right away. It is just hard to find a good doctor that is knowledgeable here.

So I do thank you for posting.

Sounds to me like blood is pooling in your legs for some reason,......not a good thing at all. Hope you find out what it is very soon!
