    my legs get a light blue/purplish too, i'm really fare skinned, sometimes i use tan lotion to hide it as best as i can.A long time ago many many years, a dr told me it was just that i have thin skin, hello?? I think it's more to it than that when they sting and toes are very purple at times????BOTH FEET.

    I forgot to put the toes & feet thing on my other post about shaking legs, I did try to look for it threw search & with 0 results.

    It happens all the time, they sting a little when they are purple, i am going to take a picture of them to show my doc next month. But does anyone else get blueish purple toes & feet like i do???????

    I get that too. I am pretty sure that it is due to poor circulation and made wore by immobility and lack of exercise. I think it might be hereditary. I have talked to the dr about it but my legs were not blue when I was in the office so he sort of ignored it. If it is really bad, do some research on poor circulation and circulatory conditions. I know I have read several times about it but I do not have a link to give you. Best of luck.
    PS, Soaking in hot water helps, at least temporarily.
