Ankle & Feet Discoloration are Signs of Advanced Vein Disease

One of the more advanced signs of vein disease is discoloration of the ankles and feet. Brown tinged ankles and purple feet happen when blood pressure increases within the veins and blood pools in the lower extremities because the vein walls have become stretched and can no longer pump blood back up from the leg towards the heart. Dr. Hamilton describes this very treatable vein situation.
