I have a purpura color blotch on the top of my left hand…

Customer Question
I have a purpura...

I have a purpura color blotch on the top of my left hand extending from under my middle finger all the way to my thumb. I am a diabetic. Can high blood pressure cause it?

Doctor's Assistant: When was last time you had a check up? Is there a history of high blood pressure in your family?

I don't know. But I have confused readings because every time I go the see my doc and the nurse takes my blood pressure. She has to take it twice one time sitting down and one time standing up to determine the correct blood pressure reading. It shows high when sitting down and normal when standing up.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I am a breast cancer survivor.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
