Can blood color indicate heart disease?
Hi, so since a day of overexercising, it looks like my blood turned light purple :$
Maybe it sounds like an stupid conclusion, but I can notice that in every place where I should get a reddish color, I'm getting a light purple one instead. For example a rash, my fingernails, my face after crying, a scar, a scratch, whatever, now get light purple instead of red. I got EKG, echo and other tests, all came back normal. What are the causes of this colouration?

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Bluish discoloration of the blood is termed as cyanosis and this occurs with hypoxia. As your tests are normal I assume O2 sat is good. If the discoloration is localized to hands then it could be raynaud's phenomenon. Also, check to see if it is an allergic reaction.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Understand your predicament.
As long as your O2 sats and ejection fraction are good, you don't have to worry. Also, for cyanosis to occur you should have symptoms of breathlessness.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
