I have Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (caused by my anxiety).
For the past two months, I have noticed pin-sized red dots appearing on both my feet and ankles, only going up about 1/3 of my lower legs. These spots sometimes go away and then reappear. Today, I noticed it has come back, worse than it was before. It does not itch or hurt at all, I am totally oblivious to it.
Chronic medication I take is Stresam, Lansoloc and Movicol.
I take daily vitamin supplements: omega-3, zinc, magnesium, calcium, vitamin c, vitamin b, olive leaf extract, probiotics, digestive enzymes,
Recent thorough blood tests that were done came back all normal.
