Skin Turns Purple!!!

I had this workout partner about a year ago, one day he got to the
gym and his skin was purple!!! Can anyone tell me why? By the way
he never would end a cycle, he tried for like a week and said that
he was so weak that he had to go back on.
AND I MEAN PURPLE LOL

    Yeah everyone at the gym was asking him if he felt okay, You caould
    push on his skin and it would go from purple to white. I wonder if
    it's due to too much water?

    purple?

    possibly a very low blood pressure - i know people with poos circulation in their extremities have purple hands and feet for example!

    or alternatively too high a blood pressure but this would turn him bright red - not purple

    surely that would make them brown not purple

    Sounds to me like Raynaud's Disease. (Raynaud's Phenomenon.

    I suffer from it and it would often happen in the cold, I would shiver and get incredibly cold.

    The capiliaries and vains tighten up and it's hard for the blood to go through.

    Many times my hands would go like lumps of meat and my arms and feet. In fact all extermities.

    I found that when I got into BBing years back all the training and the weight gain helped as with the extra weight I rarely felt cold.

    Just adding to this Raynaud's Disease is basically incredibly poor circulation.
