What could cause my palms and soles to turn orangish brown?

My palms and soles keep getting these rustish/yellow/brownish/orangeish spots on them. It isn't something that can wash off and it isn't some form of dye. It seems worse in the mornings and fades as the day goes by most of the time. It's been happening off and on for a year, but every time I am at a doctors visit I always forget to bring it up. Anyone ever experience this?

    I actually do have a history of hypothyroidism. I came of my synthroid a few years ago and haven't been tested since then, when they said everything seemed normal. I had never heard of it causing discoloration to the hands. Thanks!
