I got blue legs after wearing skinny jeans. Is this serious? What should I do?

I got blue legs after wearing skinny jeans. Is this serious? What should I do?

Dye: It sounds like the material was not dye fast. I would try washing the jeans (with dark colors) several times to see if that removes the bleeding dyes. Otherwise, you may be out of luck with that pair of jeans. Your legs should return to their normal color. These kind of things can happen. ...Read more

Foot is blue leg is cold up to the knee cap pin and needles in my foot i can see spiderweb veins in leg foot and calf swollen. Sprained one month ago?

Get it checked ASAP.: Two possibilities come to mind. If you have a blood clot in your calf, your leg could look like that. Have it checked out immediately, because blood clots can go to the lungs. If it is not a blood clot, it could be CRPS (complex regional pain syndrome). This also needs to be seen soon as it can turn into a major pain problem. ...Read more

I : I assume that this is all happening near the site at which your artery was accessed for your catheterization. It sounds like you had a little bleeding at the puncture site and are now seeing the blood through the skin. This is not uncommon when there's been bleeding under the skin and should not be cause for concern as long as the swelling is going down. If the symptoms persist or the swelling increases, you'll need an ultrasound examination of the artery to rule out an ongoing leak of blood. ...Read more

24 weeks pregnant. Temperature 99.1. Visible blue vein in leg below knee causing dull ache and pinching like pain, bothersome enough to prevent sleep.

24 weeks pregnant. Temperature 99.1. Visible blue vein in leg below knee causing dull ache and pinching like pain, bothersome enough to prevent sleep.

Varicose vein: Sounds like you have a varicose vein and since it is visible its a superficial one (much less concern). That temp is not a fever by the way. Try a heating pad over the vein and tylenol (acetaminophen) for the pain. If you have red around the vein that however would mean infection and that would require further evaluation. Have your OB provider evaluate that area to see if TED hose are needed. ...Read more
