Red_Star, I don't know if we can just assume that missing lunula is normal. For example, in my case, I have had lethargy, fatigue symptoms much before my hypothyroid was diagnosed.

Hi, guys, I want to read everything in this thread , but it's too late tonight. I need to retract something I said earlier about the effect of getting hot. I mentioned to my MS specialist that after a long hot shower I briefly had a new symptom. He is usually very calm, but he said immediately, "That's a big NO NO!" He said that elevated core temperature, even a partial degree, can activate the disease. It can even sometimes trigger a full relapse!!
I am 23 now and it just comes and goes with time as it pleases. NOTHING seems to help, except wearing rubber gloves at night to keep the skin moisturized. This helps keep it from cracking a little bit. I have tried all the different creams for it and none ever work long, if at all. Tazorac, Elocon, cortizones, etc...
I've been to vascular surgeons, cardiologists. hand surgeons and regular md's and no one can help me. This just happened again to my thumb after 10 years and my cardiologist prescribed high blood pressure meds...and I DON'T have high blood pressure, I've been running for 25 years! If anyone has a diagnosis please share...I know your frustration.
I have been on a health kick all this year (lost 40 pounds and brought down my cholesterol, triglycerides 55....basically pretty healthy. I started having constipation, so upped my fiber...but sometimes straining to go to bathroom, belching and burping, white spots in stool and yesterday a little blood in the stool. At the time I met with the gastro doctor, was asked if I had blood in stool and I hadn't then.
