Spot on the skin and heart problems

I'm worried because I've recently had some brown spots on my skin. I had heart problems a few years ago but they disappeared. 
According to what I have read in specialized portals: there is no direct relationship between the appearance of spots on the skin and the heart, but I want to be sure to rule out possible causes.

Does anyone know if there's any connection between these two things?

    I have not heard of this. What does your general practitioner say? Thanks Katie

    For sure get it checked out, even if it isn't the heart you still want to know the cause.

    I assume that you have checked with your primary physician and asked about any potential "side effects" of medicine (regularly taken pills, etc.) relative to heart conditions?   There are some very potent medications that a large number of heart "patients" take (prescription) that have dramatic impact on skin!  Coumadin & Warfarin are two that jump out, but others have potential to impact skin.  There are alternative actions possible, when the side effects medications are severe.
