My mom has lupus and she has low iron. Today she has been feeling weak, tired, and fatigued. We were sitting at the table talking and all of a sudden both her knees turned dark purple. It stayed for a couple minutes and slowly faded. We both are wondering what could cause this.
I came on here in the hope of finding the answer as I also suffer from purple knees and sometimes they have a rather bright pink colour also. The discolouring can last for hour's and It is very embarrassing. I hardly ever ware dresses or skirts and in the hot weather I daren't get the sun on my legs in the hope to cover it up with a tan for fear of people seeing the awful sight. It really isn't a joke and at times I have a lot of pain in my knees as well. They are always worse in the cold. I wondered if anyone may know if the two may be connected and if it is anything that maybe I should bother the doctor with? I suffer from raynards disease and wondered if it may be to do with this?
Any serious answers or suggestions would be very much appreciated.
My very kind thanks to you all who are able to impute and my sympathies to fellow sufferers.
Hi,I get this, sometimes you might notice a peachy colour with it to,also my hands andtoes and maybe the odd patch here and there,sometimes can be sensitive to touch also.I have had this many of years and have just been diagnosed with type 2 raynauds phenomenon and fibromyalgia .it could be worth having a look at some symptoms from the above two I mentioned. I also is currently waiting to see dermatologist of possible lupus. Hope this helps good luck☺
