Thank you very much Hep93 and Kitt for your responses
I'm back with an update. The doctor I saw was actually an Internist, she was very thorough and very good. She really thinks the bluish lips aren't anything serious as everything with the clinical exam was perfectly normal. As a precaution she's ordered a heart echo, lung function test, chest xray and a boatload of blood tests (diabetes, thyroid, etc etc).
At first she couldn't see the color change in my lips, but after standing for a couple minutes she did, but said it wasn't very impressive. LOL
Thanks again for your feedback and if we find any answers I will update again.

Thanks for the update and I am glad you saw the physician and that you are going to have some testing down.
It sounds like the physician you saw was a good doctor and listened to what you had to say. Good for you for advocating for yourself and taking the step to see this physician.
Take care and stick with us.
