Not sure what this could be...

Okay so I have some small stretch marks on my hips that are fairly new, but recently I've noticed that I have these purply lines around them... They look like they could be stretch marks but they're more under the skin, if that makes sense. Any ideas on what they could be?

Here's some background on me:

I gained about 30 pounds my freshman year of college (ugh, every girls worse nightmare) and am just about to finish my sophomore year. I've maintained the same weight and then about 3 months ago I randomly gained 10 pounds in a week. Around 6 weeks I noticed these small red marks on my hips but then they went away and then about 3 weeks ago they reappeared and are definitely stretch marks. I was recently diagnosed with ADHD I've been on adderall for about 5 weeks now. I've lost around 12 pounds since from just not eating as much. I'm still working on my correct dose and last week I took too much and didn't sleep for about 40 hours straight; that's when I first noticed the purple ones. I still haven't slept that much, maybe 3-4 hours a night, cause of studying and they still haven't gone away.

Could my adderall/lack of sleep have something to do with it and it'll go way?? I mean I don't think its anything serious... They could be new stretch marks but why are they appearing now!? I've always had clear and smooth skin so I don't get what happened....

Any ideas or thoughts welcome!

Thanks :)
