This has been over one year that my feet turn dark bluish/purple. It was first suggested that it was raynods (?). However, this happens every day all day. I do have osteoarthritis. I have lost both thumb joints and have had bone grafts for both. I have had three spinal surgeries and a hysterectomy.
When standing too long, which creates the nausea, profuse sweating, and then I can stand no longer (fall to the floor), I have noted that the color that is in my feet appears halfway up my calf.
The heart monitor and echo was done approximately one month ago, as was the CAT scan of brain.
It has been noted that getting a pulse in my right foot is very hard to do. I also see the veins in my right hand and arm have diminished in size significantly.
Blood sugar has been drawn, and I tend to be on the low side of a fasting glucose. No other diseases have been diagnosed.
My meds include: Mobic, wellbutrin, armour and synthroid, cholesterol med (Prostatin?)as LDL is very high even though I walk 5 miles per day and eat very healthy.
Suppliments include: 2400 mgs. Fish oil, 500 mgs. Vitamin C, 1000 mgs. Cinnamon
