Stroke, hands turning purple

In response.

Strokes generally affect motor function of the muscular system. If hands are turning purple after a stroke, that indicates that somehow the circulation to the hands is not functioning. That means that the stroke may have caused a localized thrombosis or a blockage of circulation in the major blood vessels to the hands.

Soak the hands in hot water for at least 40 minutes at a time and then use a lot of vapor rub to rub and massage the hands and arms to try to bring back circulation to the hands.
