Post brownish spots on palm and fingers

Not sure if this is Kidney related:

brownish colored spots on palm of hand and down side of a finger. first occured at end of pregnancy in 2002, but went away 1 wk later. OBGYN had never seen before. Now, 5months later another spot on my palm. best described as the spots look like i spilled lacquer on me...weird brownish color. any ideas?

Do you have any other kidney related problems? If not, then this sounds rather more to do with the pigmentation in the skin and you would probably do better to see a dermatologist.

Developed High Blood Pressure at end of pregnancy and it has been 5months now and HBP hasnt gone down. Am on 5 meds for HBP. My Doc is sending me to a Nephrologist for 2nd opinion and to study kidneys better. I go tomorrow to the specialist.
