Slower return.: It sounds as though the venous blood,(returning to the heart from the leg), may be a bit sluggish. This slowing can cause a blueness to the leg in question. When the foot is elevated, the color should return quickly. Before trying any over the counter treatment, have your foot evaluated for venous return issues. ...Read more

Do not take this lightly. To remove all doubt, you need to either call your doctor or visit the emergency room. ...Read more
