White spots, discoloured arms & hands

The last time I saw my ms nurse I was getting blood tests my arm turned really red/purple she asked if that was normal and I wasn’t sure as I just thought the band around my arm was quite tight. Now when I put any kind of pressure around my elbow area I start to get white dots on my arms and hands with my arm turning the colour I mentioned. Not sure if ms related, poor circulation or what is causing it.

@lukezni , it could well be MS-related. If there is MS damage between your arm and your brain, then neural messages may not be getting through, or they’re getting corrupted. If the brain doesn’t know what’s going on in an area of your body, it can’t send the correct response.

However, having said that, it may be wise to bring it up with your GP, to eliminate any non-MS issues.
