Vascular Disorders :: Legs Turn Red And Purple Colors And Patterns

Jul 19, 2015

My legs turn very weird colors and patterns! It's hard to describe. But they turn red and purple. The purple kind makes like a hexagon shape with bright red blotches in the middle. It's happens all the time and its mostly random though I've seen its more common when I'm cold or I'm in the shower. It's embarrassing, I can't wear shorts when it's 90 out! Why do they do this and how can I fix it?

Autoimmune Disorders :: Do Your ANA Patterns Change?

So now I feel like a complete hypochondriac. Ladybud (who is fabulous, btw) has helped me tremendously. I am wondering if any of you have had your ANA patterns change. I am having muscle aches, dx with small fiber neuropathy and Raynaud’s, my RBCs and C-reactive protein have been low throughout the last 3 years. I now have been dx with a reactivation of the Epstein Barr virus and alopecia due to “granulomatous Dermatitis” (getting 2nd opinion later this month).

These are my titers and patterns over the years:

10/2011 ANA Titer: 1:320 Pattern: Homogeneous
11/2011 ANA Titer: 1:320 Pattern: Homogeneous
10/2013 ANA Titer: 1:320 Pattern: Homogeneous
5/2014 ANA Titer: 1:160 Pattern: Homogeneous


6/2014 (AVISE SLE 2.0 TESTING (1st time with this test) ANA Titer: 1:80 Pattern: Diffuse fine speckled

Negative on all markers. I am HLA-B27 Positive, but negative for ankylosing spondylitis (AS).

Now my rheumatologist stated all my blood work appears to be normal and I have ZERO autoimmune positivity.

Huh? I feel like such a hypochondriac.

Vascular Disorders :: 2 Black Veins/arteries Showing Under The Skin Of My Right Arm

I'm a 22yo female. 3 hours ago, I accidentally noticed 2 black veins/arteries showing under the skin of my right arm and 1 on my left arm. There was also a dark area near my right wrist. Then the black veins/arteries disappeared and more dark areas appeared. Also, one very dark bluish purple bruise appeared on my left thigh. It looks like a bruise you get after a physical trauma. It hurts very little when you press it. Other than that, I feel absolutely nothing weird.

I'm anemic and have been since I was a kid. My chest is tight most of the time. I'm not taking any meds regularly. But around 18 hours ago, I took a Brufen 400mg for a nasty headache I had. It's still there, btw.

It's 4 in the morning here so I can't go to a doctor right now. If you can give me an idea what it could be or even what kind of doctor to go to in the morning, I would appreciate it.

Vascular Disorders :: Left Thigh Feels Cold/semi-numb As If The Veins Are Blocked


A month earlier I fell off my motor-bike. For almost three days my leg was fine.


- I started having that cold/semi-numb feeling in my left thigh as if the veins are blocked

- When I lift heavy object or jog for 15 minutes the left leg can't hold my weight

- I feel a little better while standing

- I also sometimes feel a sharp pinch in thigh muscle and hip

I'm pretty sure I don't have broken bones.

What could have gone wrong?

Nerve Disorders :: Intense Cramps In My Lower Legs, Hips And Feet

On Sunday night my left leg started aching and I could barely walk because it hurt so much, also my hip hurt at the same time and my lower back on the left side, I stayed home from school for two days and then tried going there but that made the pain worse so both my legs started aching, it kind of felt like constant small cramps that sometimes got more intense, in my left leg it's my thigh and knee mainly and in my left leg my shin, I had to go home because the pain distracted me from being able to work.It later got a bit better but at night I had more intense cramps in my lower legs and feet.Today i've been pretty well, went to school again and now only my left leg is aching but not as much and mainly when I put weight on it but about an hour ago the left side of my face started to feel strange, I can't really explain it..but maybe a bit strained and also it burns, my jaw feels weird too.My parents says that I should not worry because I don't have any fever at all but I still want to know what the symptoms might be? I am going to see a doctor asap but there's no idea doing it now since I don't have a fever they won't take me seriously.Let me also add that I do not exercise and I sit behind my computer a lot, so it can't be some kind of injury.

Fibromyalgia Syndrome :: REM And Non-REM Sleep Patterns

While the quantity of sleep can be important, what's much more important is the quality. Our bodies go through two distinct stages of sleep starting with non-REM (Rapid Eye Movement) and then into REM and cycling between the two throughout the night.

When we first fall asleep we drop into the non-REM cycle and this can be further broken down into three stages which move closer towards a deeper sleep. It's during the last stage where our bodies repair and heal and rebuild themselves. Non-REM sleep typically lasts up to 60-90 minutes with the majority of that time devoted to a deep sleep.

After this our bodies cycle into REM sleep. The main characteristic of this cycle is the eye movements that take place and before there were EEGs and ways of measuring muscle activity it was thought that our brains simply shut-off during sleep, this was far from the truth. During REM sleep our brains are quite active and this is the time when dreams occur, if you wake up and vividly remember a dream you were probably in the middle of REM sleep. It is also thought that REM sleep enhances our memory and contributes to our mental and emotional health. It's possible that during these two cycles of sleep we go through periods of maintaining our bodies and our minds.

Adults typically need between 7.5 to 9 hours of sleep a night and during this time our bodies will move through one cycle to the next and back several times. There are also a lucky few of us who seem to be able to function on less sleep...

Peripheral Vascular Disease, Floaters And Anxiety

I had a PVD about 2 years ago, plus I've always had floaters, however, I just had a new floater and the doctor did laser eye surgery. I always have a great deal of anxiety and since this just happened right before I was to go out of the country on vacation I had a major panic attack and couldn't force myself to go. I was scared to be in a foreign land for fear something would happen. I don't want this to control my life, but now it has.

Anxiety :: Stiff Legs / Jelly Legs

I always get stiff legs/weak legs (it is hard to describe) when i walk past people.

I know they probably aren't even looking at me but if there's a chance they could be, I find it hard to put one foot in front of the other and walk normally.

Does anyone else get this?

Eyes :: Geometric Shape Patterns Appearing In Both Eyes

Small but geometric -ish shape. This changes in 1/2 hour or more, the shape gets larger forming a getting larger approximate 'C' shape to the left of center. It is almost like me seeing a crude kaleidoscope . Eventually the thing disappears to the left. The shape seems to be of small triangles squares, anything 'sort of' geometric. I can see past it but still have to see the shape. Whichever eye I close I can still see it; close both I can see it!   It has now cleared completely as  I have not being looking at the sun or any strong light. Is it 'just one of those things' to be tolerated every now and then. I am 75 and in general good health
