In brief: Possible circ issue

There may be a circulation problem in the lower legs.
Speak to doctor. The patient, family and doctor need to decide what to do. A vascular consult could be in order.

Is the foot also cold? swollen? This could be a serious problem and should be ween by a vascular specialist ASAP

In brief: See below

This is a sign of poor circulation.
A trip to the vascular doctor would be a good start.
