I have been taking my son to the doctor for the last three weeks because he is having symptoms of poor circulation but it continues to get worse. (started with only his feet and now is hands and lips also turn a dark purple) My doctor is ordering a pediatric echocardiagram to test his heart, but has no idea why this happens. It normally occurs when he is inactive; in highchair, napping or in car seat.
I'm just curious if this has happened to anyone else. I had to take him to the ER tonight because his feet were purple (like barney purple/gray) for two hours. They did blood tests that came back normal, but said that I would have to wait for the echo to get any final answers.
I am frustrated! Please help!
