Vascular Surgery

Why did my wrist turn black and blue?

10/22/2008

Question:

As i was sitting at a table, (doing nothing) I experienced a sharp pain in my left wrist. I looked at the inside of my wrist and it turned black and blue? Is this something serious?

Answer:

Hello. While this is not a vascular surgery question per se, I don't have an answer without more of your medical background. As long as it goes away, you should be OK, but I would ask your doctor if it happens again. Good luck!
