Why are my hands and feet always very cold and nearly purple and my toes on each foot beside the big toe feel very sore like bruised?

You might have. Something called raynauds. It is not serious but if you live where it is cold, then this condition caused especially fingertips , fingers and toes to turn bluish purple and sometimes even white. People who have it really bad will find it happens even when putting their hand in the freezer at home or in the grocery store. Verapamil sometimes helps but other meds might help more.

Nerve compression. Your symptoms sound like more than muscle strain and are consistent with compression or injury to the spinal cord or major spinal nerves possibly from a herniated disc in the lumbar area. Without more information regarding location of your syringomyelia, it is hard to say if that is related. You need to be seen on an urgent basis and may need MRI. Your neurosurgeon knows you best.

Thank . Thank you for your excellent description of your problem. I also love when there is a photo, however the link you provided didn't lead to a photo, but an error. But from your description, i'd say you have an onychia, which is a little infection along the base of the toenail, probably from irritation during the run. The typical scenario is a tiny blister forms from irritation. With continued irritation, the blister breaks and bacteria invade to produce a small, localized infection. It's not serious, and unless there is overt redness, heat and swelling or a pocket of pus, it will probably subside on its own (assuming you're in good health, not a diabetic, no poor circulation, etc.). Keep it covered with a band aid, especially when you run. Warm water soaks will help too. If you keep getting this, you may want to get some roll foam to cover your toe while you run to prevent irritation to the area. In rare occurrences, the nail needs to be removed to allow pus to drain, but this hardly ever is needed. Hope this helps. Happy running! Read more...
See podiatrist. Some possibilities may be keratinized tissue, fungus, bacterial colonization, pyogenic granuloma....Without visualization of the lesion harder to give definitive diagnosis. A podiatrist likely can diagnose and offer treatment on seeing the toe. Read more...
