Postby masonsbarms » Wed Aug 08, 2012 4:42 pm

hi i read somewhere (cant remember) on the internet that ridges in your nails has been found to be asociated with people wiyh fm.

i have them in my finger and toe nails paralel on fingers horizontal on toes,

you can see them and feel them if you run your fingers over them.

just wonderd how many if any others have this, as maybe this is a visible sighn.

I also have ridges on my fingers nails. I don't worry about them, I just use a nail buffer to make my nails nice and smooth :-)

Hi, the halo is probably just your lunula! They're perfectly normal and nothing to worry about. A light buffing should help with ridges, and you can get a ridge filler if it's really bad. Maybe get some skin hair and nail vitamins or some nail feed, and stay away from those awful acrylics! If you must get falsies get gel, much more breathable.

I have these . It also depends when I have been ill . It seems like if I get a bad attack of Fibro then about a week or two later I will notice a horizotonal ridge , not a smooth surface and can be converse or concave ??? If I paint my nails [ and it only appears on my big toe ] my nail will have a groove of nail varnish . Other times it can be raised and rough . Arn't toes weird things anyway :)

im growing my nails and noticed that the ridges are more prominent and edges of nails curling/flicking outwards, and tend to break easily... i do have a problem hate the touch of emery boards and reluctant to file

Hi

I have nail ridges on my finger nails (but can't bend enough to see if they are on my toenails). Funnily enough last time I went to fibro doc he said that my bloods showed that I was defficient in Vit D and gave me tablets to suck (Calcichew). Wonder if there is a connection then. :dunno:
