I have hypothyroidism and V as well. To complicate matters I also have Schambergs disease which causes blood to pool in my capillaries causing brown spots from my knees down. So I'm dealing with dark spots and splotches and white patches at the same time. I'm on a blood thinner due to a mechanical mitral valve. I struggle at times to stay positive.
