Should I just relax and ignore it? I have dysautonomia and I know it is the cause of my blood pooling in my legs but often I notice it’s sometimes just in my knees. Like today my knees were purple and it goes white when I press on it. I went to the gym (which requires a lot of rest and prep to do without throwing up or passing out lol) and even with the exercise they were still purple when in theory my circulation should be even better. My legs are often also cold after/during exercise or just in general. Should I ignore it? There’s not a lot online about purple knees besides peripheral artery disease.

      Okay, for me, I have POTS. I get purple legs from standing and they're sometimes cold. The cold, from my understanding, is because fat is being burned in that area of the body. You are working out, so this explanation does align with my experiences. You may also be using your knees more in these workouts. As always, don't be hesitant to reach out to your doctor.
