Vascular related: It is plausible that when you stand and walk the musculature system helps blood flow back thru the venous network but when you sit the blood pools in the feet letting it turn the color of venous blood when it pools. It is worth checking out with a vascular doctor. There may not be much to do for it, but it should be checked out anyway. ...Read more

Due to veins: When you sit it seems that you are clotting a vein temporarily. As the blood accumulates the leg get more swollen and it turns that color. Many times patients also feel numbness, this is due to that vein pressure compressing the sensory nerves. ...Read more

Raynaud's: The problem you describe is known as Raynaud's. In a young person like yourself this tends to be a more benign condition. It is basically an exaggerated response to the cold whereby the small blood vessels in hands and feet constrict to preserve heat in the body's core. Patients should avoid cold, use gloves, and avoid smoking. An appointment with your doctor would be helpful. ...Read more

Sometimes, blood flow will change due to nerve signals or chemical signals telling the vessels to constrict. A primary doctor and a rheumatologist can evaluate and look for the cause. ...Read more
