May Be the Arteries: There are many causes of discoloration of the ankles and feet. Ruling out a blood clot is good but those usually occur in the veins. Having pain and discoloration in the feet and ankles is often due to a decrease in the blood flow. I recommend seeing a vascular specialist in your area for blood flow testing.
