sorry for the delay.

the question was in dermatology all night.

poor circulation in your legs can turn your legs blue when you sit for too long

venous blood can pool in your legs if you don't get up and circulate the blood in your legs

you should see your doctor about the loss toe nail and get an evaluation of the toe nail bed to check for infection or sometimes skin cancer of the toe nail bed can cause nails to come off

do you have any bleeding of the toe nail bed?

when was the last time you saw a doctor?
