I’m trying to see how many of us might be dealing with this issue.
For the last year and a half, my right lower leg (calf, shin and foot) has been regularly discolored and almost always cold, no matter what the ambient temperatures might be.
My GP sent me to a vascular doctor who checked my blood flow and looked for blockages, but was told that my veins looked excellent and my blood flow was strong, so the weirdness wasn’t due to heart or vein issues. He suggested that it might be due to vein spasms.
My GP accepted this answer and suggested compression socks or compression sleeves to see if that helped with the discoloration and coldness.
My neurologist, however, has mentioned that this is very common in MSers, but none of the people I know currently with MS have ever experienced this symptom. She said that it’s nothing to be concerned about.
Do any of you have a similar symptom or have you experienced this in the past? My neurologist said that a this point, because it’s been a constant daily symptom that it’s highly unlikely to correct itself from here on out.
