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.

      I have POTS and experience this too - the main things that help with blood pooling are compression socks and also manually getting the blood back to my heart by laying on the ground against a wall with my legs on the wall also definitely dont ignore it!!! there is always a solution out there, and if there is something that can help then u should pursue it ^__^ wishing u the best

One user with similar experiences suggests that the coldness and purple color could be due to fat being burned in that area of the body during exercise. However, it's always a good idea to consult your doctor about any concerns you have regarding your symptoms.
