Postby dansmail26 » Fri Apr 13, 2018 4:26 pm

How many people have a purple foot? I had one and after a ccsvi procedure it went away. I waas just reading the biotin thread here and someione said there purple foot went away..
Do others have this? Never heard it mentioned before as an ms symptom.

that is a wise ass reply to a serious question.

have others had a blue/purple foot before? Like I said I did and itn disappeared with ccsvi angioplasty. I read another person had it and got rid of it with biotin. do others with ms have this?

This is a fairly common symptom of MS. I believe it's caused by faulty circulation due to the nerves and muscles not functioning 100%. My wife has had it off an on for several years. CCSVI helped for a few months, as did biotin. She still gets it a little, but not like before.

Hi,

If it's purple then it will be to do with either circulation or infection. It can imply a diabetic condition, early gangrene, Raynaud's disease or a blocked artery. It could be indicative of more serious circulatory conditions that could result in clots shifting, predict the risk of a later stroke or if left untreated result in amputation.

I wouldn't sit there and say "it's my MS".

We can't see your foot. Go to a doctor.

Add congestive heart failure to the list for purple feet.

I have experienced purple/red swollen feet due to MS. This has only happened twice and was part of an exacerbation, once the exacerbation resolved so did the swollen purple/red feet problem. I have never experienced this any other time and I did not use steroids.

If it's only one foot, it's probably MS. Terry Wahls talks about this symptom in her book.

The two times it happened as part of an exacerbation is was both feet, however, my exacerbations will present bilaterally.
