toes turn purple when I try to walk, why?

Doc,

I sprained and have a hairline fracture in my left ankle. I've seen a doctor and a specialist. On my last visit, the doctor said I could start walking on it. I did slowly and that night my toes started turning purple again. I called and the nurse told me to stay off of it for the weekend. So I stayed off for almost a week and tried walking again, and same thing happened. It turned purple again. Is this normal? It's been almost 3 weeks..

thanks

DJ
