This is going to be an odd question, but here goes:
I am a natural redhead, but a couple of years ago, I started noticing that I was growing some black hairs in the pubic region. Just a clump of jet black hair in an area of otherwise red hair. A few months after that, I noticed that, if I let the hair in my armpits grow, some of them have been black, as well.
I hate going to the doctor, so have not been to find out what could be causing this, or even if I should be concerned about it. However, I wonder if it could be somehow pituitary-related?
Has anyone here heard of such a thing happening? I can't really find anything on the internet about hair suddenly changing color unless it's to gray, or after a bone marrow transplant, which I have never had done. I haven't even ever had a blood transfusion.
I am 45 years old, female, and have had my left ovary removed when I had a dermoid cyst the size of a cantaloupe removed. I don't really know what other information give, so I will just tell a few more things about myself.
I have had insomnia since I was a teenager. I get migraines several times a year. I am anemic, as are almost all of my family members (mom and sister have to have iron infusions, and mom has to have blood transfusions once or twice a year). I had meningitis when I was a child.

I try to slow myself down, but it doesn't help much. My mouth feels dry all of the time, but I
