My feet and legs fall asleep after sitting on the toilet for not too long. Is this somethin to be concerned about? Causes?

My legs and feet

Extremity-lower-foot
Usually not, if you sit in one position for too long, you are putting pressure on the nerves behind your knees and you will have the sensation of feet and legs falling asleep, once you move around, this usually goes away. Try to straighten your knees and moving your legs more when sitting in one position. If this happens with other positions, then it is time to visit a neurologist.

My toes are always a blue/purple color. My legs fall asleep often. Is this normal?

Not normal

Ankle
Your history is unknown to me but sounds like you may have problems with your circulation. Would recommend that you have testing done (can be ordered by your primary care doctor) to check your circulation such as ankle brachial index measurement, arterial ultrasound, and possibly others as deemed necessary by your doctor.
