For the last week or so I've been having a transient throbbing feeling in my limbs like the circulation is cut off.

Today, my feet were an unusual color: ranging sunburn-like red to a purplish tint. They have a pretty slow capillary refill time as well.

I will call my doctor if necessary (I can't reach them until tomorrow) but is this a normal thing? I haven't had it like this before. I just came off my 2nd high dose artemisinin pulse if that could have had something to do with it.

Could be hypercoagulation, which interferes with circulation. Some people take enzymes for this.

Summer3...

I just saw Dr. J for the first time 2 weeks ago. When he examined me, he said that my purple-mottled skin on my legs was a symptom of Lyme. I said I thought it was just cuz I'm so light-skinned Irish-German-Icelandic. He said "no", that's Lyme.

when i first got lyme i got very mottled red and purple feet and lower legs.

my gp said it was my heart and poor circulation.

then i went to a llmd and he said no, it's lyme.

Poor circulation can be part of lyme. That is why so many of us have SPECT scans that say hypoperfusion.

Hmmm, this is a symptom that came back recently for me along with tingly limbs. My legs and feet are purple and blotchy especially after a shower. Strangely, it came back after starting Colloidal silver.

The throbbing returned last night and tonight. My limbs are also very weak off and on like I can't move them. It appears to be on a weekly cycle. I'm sure it's just another Lyme symptom, but since it's new for me I get worried. I thought it was coming from artemisinin, but this weekend is my off weekend.........
