sorry i feel like im asking so many questions but...i just have so many im sure everyone else does too.
when i stand up in place for a few minutes my legs tend to go numb kinda and they turn blotchy and blue then they itch.. like when im in the shower or when im cooking ect..
has anyone else had this?

ive had this problem for a while now
could this be related to lupus?

I am sorry I cant help you.

I do think you need to talk to your rhumey about this symptom.

Take care,

Blue Legs

My legs do the same thing or sometimes just my feet - Mine
is due from poor circulation from damage caused by the
blood clots I have had - You might want to have your
primary doctor order a doppler to check your blood flow
in your legs -

Like with mine my blood was just pooling and having a hard
time coming back up - Now I wear (or should be wearing daily)
the compression stockings to help get that blood flow back
up -

But with a simple doppler (its like an ultra sound of your
veins in both of your legs) which they do with you laying
down and standing up it might give you some answers -

Hi, I was wondering if you had taken photos of this reaction, then you can show your rheumy or gp. It might help them to diagnose what is happening.
Also keep a symptom diary of when it happens. Let us know how you get on.

Take care
