Thank you for replying back.
The symptoms you have described of black spots on calves,toes,feet & ankles can be due to various causes.The most common causes are:Chronic Venous insufficiency (C.V.I.),Deep vein thrombosis(DVT) in which blood flowing in the leg veins get clotted and thereby block the return flow of impure blood,pimples,hormonal changes.
These black spots on legs should not be ignored.Although there does not seem to be anything serious or dangerous but this is of concern & should be evaluated by your doctor.
You need following tests:
-Ultrasound scan of the leg,
- D-dimer blood test,
-Certain blood tests,
It is utmost essential to know/confirm the cause of these black spots on leg. So I advice you to make an appointment with your doctor for these tests & examination to know the exact cause & then treatment will be done accordingly.
Hope this helped
If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond.
One of the rare side affect of lyrica is swelling in foot & ankles.But the black spots you are having cannot be due to the lyrica.
Most likely this can be due to blood circulation disorder.
Vascular doctor is the best doctor to see for this condition.Doppler ultrasound and Venography is required to know the exact cause.
So my advise for you is to make an appointment with another senior vascular doctor to have these above described tests & then treatment will be done accordingly.
