    Circulation issues - splotchy legs?

    Does anyone have splotchy colored legs? I noticed that it is fairly extreme when I get out of the shower. After standing for a few minutes, my legs will turn slightly purple/red and I'll see white spots on my legs. It's as if my blood is not making it to my legs. I have tingling in my legs too, but I've had several MRIs before and nothing was found. I haven't been diagnosed with anything yet, although I have some thyroid like symptoms. I'm still trying to convince my doctor to do some expanded thyroid testing.

    I have this and have always had this. It is a symptoms of my fair skin and the fact that I flush/blush easily. I also have rosacea and dermatographism (the skin gets read easily). It really doesn't involve the thyroid but it is more of a blood flow and/or sensitivity reaction.
