When your lower leg turns bluish is it also cold? I would be very careful about rubbing it to much, especially when your lower leg turns blue, and I would definitely get some tests done. and ultra sound to check the circulation in you legs would be a good start. Becarefull with this, untill you know what is causing this to happen! Do you get charlie horses or muscle spasms in your lower leg? There are so many things that can cause stuff like this, so keep pressing your Doctor for answers!
Good Luck to you!
