Avatar f tn I think it's just a nervous habit, no different than biting nails. I bit my nails so bad in the past that they would bleed. I got a pedicure once and they told me how bad my nails looked and I never bit them again. Now I have beautiful fingernails, but its like double time on my tongue now! I bit my nails if I was bored, nervous, i thought one was uneven...etc. I bite the papillae for the same reasons. Its just a nervous habit.
Avatar f tn The medication works great with helping her to focus, but ever since she started taking it she has lost weight and now has become obsessed with biting her finger nails and skin around her nails. I have talked with our pediatrician and he seems to think I am doing all that I should for her to gain weight, but I am still clueless as to how to prevent her from destroying her fingers.
Avatar f tn One of my (well two) of my pregnancy aversions were cigarettes and nail biting, and I've been biting my nails since birth. So at 22. Man. Hopefully I won't start back. I quit literally the second I found out I was pregnant, prayed to God and I don't even get cravings or the 'itch' for smokes. :) its going to be okay ladies.
740516 tn?1360946086 Cats more than ppl know what they want to eat and very rarely will find prey that is harmful to them (unless they are just playing with it to play with it, as does my youngest cat with Garden snakes ewww). Mom needs to have some fun anyway and she is not going hurt her babies or let this 'lizard' hurt her babies. Remember, Momma's are quite protective!

Avatar n tn I found that when I would wear acrylic nails that I would stop picking so much. Acryllic nails arent sharp enough too pick the way real nails can. It is less satisfying for me. I do suffer from depression and anxiety and am currently on 20 mg Lexipro and .5 mg Klonopin. But it doesnt help my obsession. I cant say that I am ashamed of this obsession. I really dont care if anyone knows. It is just a part of who I am ( I know that it is not normal!
685623 tn?1283485207 Soft Paws are acyrlic nail caps that are glued in place over the cat's nails. By creating a blunt tip, the Soft Paws keeps the cat from causing any damage, to furniture or people. In my experience, these worked ok, but needed replaced quite often. I don't think I saw more than a dozen cats with Soft Paws during my time at the veterinary clinics. So...what about the opposite viewpoint? Do cats experience immense pain and exhibit behavioral changes after a declaw?
Avatar n tn Although im not sure if the smell is still there because I some what taught myself to not pay attentions to other people's body movements. (Ex. nose covering, just biting their finger nails.) Paronoia leads to anxiety. So i figured if i do smell i cant do anything about it anyways so why bother. I think what attributes to most of the change is waking up early and going to the bathroom every morning. No matter how tired iam.
Avatar n tn I have it too! Came on here tonight to see if anybody else gets this. Mine comes and goes. Weeks pass between bouts of it, then the taste comes back and lasts for a few days. Chemically, very bitter, biting taste! Tonight I told my husband about it and he thought I just had a bitter taste in my mouth. It's NOT in my mouth! I explained that no, this is on all my skin, my lips, my arms, my hands. I put the tip of my finger in his mouth and he immediately knew what I was talking about.
6448242 tn?1381379239 It is a small world! I am not too far from Amory. I am just sitting her biting my nails thinking about tomorrow. I wish I could just distract myself from thinking about it right now.
Avatar f tn Getting brittle or stiff? breaking? Is it thining out? Also, what do her claws/NAILS look like? Are they crubly/pitted/split etc... (One thing I'd do is dump the new cat tree. It's possible the reaction could be related.
Avatar m tn I posted this info before, but it was a reply to someone else's similar post... I am a 23 year old healthy male. I recently had a full physical and the results were that I am in above average health. I have no diseases, do not use drugs, but drink on occasion. Anyways, just started noticing these strange symptoms, within the past few weeks. Nothing "brought it on" so to speak that I can tell of.
Avatar n tn I've read that taking a B complex vitamin will make you taste "bad" to biting insects. I wonder if taking it would subtly change your aroma and chase away the gnats.
Avatar n tn Whenever I pass a construction site, am exposed to airborne concrete dust, or smell certain kinds of damp metal, I begin having the most overpowering cravings, chewing (sometimes hard) at the insides of my cheeks, or compulsively biting the sides of my tongue. I spent 5 years (94-99) as a strict vegetarian / vegan, and have been eating mostly Lacto/Ovo with some poultry and seafood since 1998. I have been anemic my whole life.
Avatar f tn The eggs live for 2 to 3 weeks on any surface and are airborne. By scratching, the microscopic eggs get under your nails and can be transferred anywhere , including your ears and nose and the food you eat. They recommend that you wash the sheets every 3-4 days and to keep hands very clean to prevent reinfestation. You can either take an OTC pin worm remedy but please know they do not kill the eggs.
Avatar n tn The fact that I can't see these ever present (things) only serve to intensify a neurological diagnosis (but hell I ain't crazy) Something is itching me, biting me, and something is crawling underneath my skin. I can defintely sympathize with poster who suffers with this while sitting at the computer, that's where I feel it the most. Of course it also kicks into high gear when I settle down to go to sleep (sh%t, sleep what't that?) Just wonder what the commonality is here . . . . .
440193 tn?1293814117 I just wanted to say that i struggle with hair loss too on ONE side (hate to say it but it makes me feel betters others go through the same struggle!!) And my advice for Cure4HairLossandGray is pray!!! God does not want us to be living in despair, and as women, we wish to bring beauty to the world, especially through our appearence. This kind of hairloss does point to a deeper healing. I know for myself, the root of this kind of hairloss is a yeast overgrowth, called candidiasis.
Avatar n tn My EK gets worse when the weather is hot or after periods of excessive hand contact activity (eg hammering nails, fixing cars). In winter where I live now, it gets down to -10C (15F) and my EK all but disappears. If someone was to go somewhere really cold for 2-3 days and expose their hands to the cold, and if they get better and the EK dissipates, then they on the same page as myself.
Avatar m tn that's coming into US from overseas somewhere?? Google... little white biting bugs... it'll come up... stating a person with these will see 3 different types of white insects(not mites or fleas,but bugs...) These things will go into the 1st layer of skin... reproducing on/in human skin... This is EXACTLY what we have... It resembles Morgellons BUT, is not Morgellons... Alot of people on here, are describing the different stages/types if this insect...
Avatar f tn As a public speaker and author in my profession, the skin condition was emotionally upsetting and stressful. Having conquered toe nails, I started researching down the path that maybe the acne was caused by a fungus (although the symptoms didn’t look like my feet). Was I surprised when I found: “ Tinea barbae is a superficial dermatophyte infection that is limited to the bearded areas of the face and neck and occurs almost exclusively in older adolescent and adult males.
Avatar n tn I am 26 and this is the first time i have had the symptoms. There is no cure nor is it harmful just annoying as hell. If you feel that these symptoms consist of GT and you want proper diagnosis see an oral surgeon they can give you the best diagnosis. Sites to look at are http://www.mayoclinic.
Avatar n tn using the carmex balm instead of tube). I have an office job and between typing out e-mails, I gnaw on my nails. Gross, but probably what's causing it for me. I cut my upper lit a tiny bit with my pinky nail yesterday, and woke up with this today. It's already spread from my top lip to a tiny bit on my bottom lip, and I'm keeping my hands away from my mouth now. I've also recently had a cold and was blowing my nose a TON, so it might even be related to the kleenex?
Avatar n tn Sometimes I question whether or not I have something else because it's really bad and it feels like I have a sudden burning rush of nails/needles stabbing my skin and I can't even move but only twitch. It's like this on a daily basis with my skin, whenever my body temperatue goes up. I feel like my body's thermostat is broken and I'm constantly overheating. I've been taking Claritin and Benadryl but that doesn't seem to help at all.
