It appeared on my hand, yesterday morning, after my arm and hand had fallen asleep; while I was asleep. At first, I thought it was just from me sleeping on it, and the impression from laying on it. It doesn't itch, have any pain, it's not raised, no bumps, or rash of any kind. It's now been there about 36 hours, and today seems to be covering a larger area, than the first day. Also, when I layed down last night; I felt some mild aching in my wrist, forearm, and elbow. I know I have neuropathy, and some herniated disc in the cervical area of my neck. Related to those problems, I have general numbness in my arm and fingers; and some occasional swelling in my hand.
First, is it possible this discoloration is related to my current medical conditions? If not, is it a dermatological problem or something else?
Please help. I don't have medical insurance and just want to make sure I look and seek help in the correct direction, instead of 1 doctor referring me to another, and so on.
