1356637 tn?1277267582 It started with his big toenail then 2 little ones, now it's his fingernails, they are detaching and falling off it looks like there'e growth underneath..IDK but it it looks like some kind of mutation..I know exactly how u's making me nervous too.
Avatar n tn I've been fatigued, moody, depressed, this sounds really weird, but my fingernails and toenails are brittle and don't grow?? I was 114 lbs and now I'm 140.(doesn't sound bad until I say I'm 5ft 3in) I'm always moody, my poor husband thought I was completely nuts for a while because I didn't make the connection that this was a result of hormones. I haven't been to the doctor because I don't want to get put on anything else, but i did take a pregnancy test and it was negative.
Avatar n tn I also buy manicure sets (Several at a time at the dollar store) and change those after clipping my toenails and fingernails. Fingernails I usually file down. I buy the cheap Daisy razors in the plastic pack/bag (usually 12+ a few free ones) and seem to need to shave 1-2 times a week now. My hair is falling out everywhere (yup EVEYWHERE) But I use a new one each week because of nicks and cuts. Thanks everyone...
Avatar n tn My other disgusting symptoms along with this were lips that would swell, eyes that would swell, feet that would swell, pain in my fingernails and toenails. Pain in my urethra. Pain in my stomach. Then huge hives moved in for months to years at a time. Insomnia, anxiety, depression. All this began in 1981. Years of severe suffering and sadness, trial and error. Doctors would say "this makes no sense." I was told it was a Tylenol allergy, then an aspirin allergy.
Avatar f tn My son has sensory issues which is caused by his nervous system. He's had these problems on and off------- we do occupational therapy and there, we learned about "brushing". Basically, his nerve endings are sending faulty signals. When we started occupational therapy and we started OT, in 6 weeks he stopped complaining about this. We occasionally go back and do it when the issue resurfaces. Google "sensory processing disorder" and read about this.

Avatar f tn I bought a box of nitrile gloves on ebay one size bigger than necessary to make it easy on and off and use them when cooking and cleaning. This helps protect my nails. I went to a podiatrist about my toenails because they were growing crooked, thickened and falling off and I couldn't bend to cut them without throwing up and was at my wit's end. He was very kind and gentle and took care of them until I could take over with them and helped me so much.
Avatar n tn I use simply coconut oil or extra virgin olive oil (organic). I lather it all over my arms, legs and face, and off I go for a run. By the time I've finished, it's absorbed and my skin is fairly dewy with sweat and moisture. I don't shower afterward either, because I want to keep my skin looking that way. I don't look at my wrinkly elbows, so they don't bother me much, but they're there. My legs are in great shape.
Avatar n tn You are affecting the very acid needed to absorb nutrients and kill off bacteria, fungi and parasites. The package insert on prescription proton pump inhibitors states 4 - 8 weeks to treat GERD.
1711722 tn?1356491154 My joints are so stiff, but I've never had a break, so I can't identify w that. I've had fungus on my toenails and my thumbnail is thick and the skin is splitting and won't heal. treating that w an antifungal. Still use miracle mouth for cracks around my lips too. I've reached a point where I just let my hair go some days. I only have to wash it one day a week cause it's so dry. But like you, I'm loving the lashes! OH! And that overly plucked look from when I went tweezer crazy as a teen?
Avatar f tn I am a fellow OCDer and can't leave resturant without cleaning off the table and stacking the dishes and trash. I like to chew my fingernails and used to like to chew my toenails when I was a kid. I have burst abcesses in my mouth before..

Avatar n tn The plan of care should include cleaning and trimming fingernails and toenails. The plan of care should include sunlight 45 minutes a day. And exposure to sunlight or the artificial equivelant every morning between 6 A.M. and 9 A.M. The plan of care should involve outside stimulation. I took my 100 year old patiuent outside in her wheelchair every day for sixty days for four hours or more. And inside stimulation. A good television set that is constantly on.
Avatar n tn A few months ago I came down with ringworm on my neck, yeast inbetween my fingers, ringworm on my scalp, yeast in my toenails and fingernails, and of course in my vagina. So i look up yeast topics on net and what do I see? Flora source. I also see all the symptoms or most of my symptoms describing systemic infection. I am shocked. So I ordered flora source. They said you will experience a die off and symptoms will get worse and let me tell you they did.
Avatar n tn and sometimes my moms or someone that lets me wen i have no more good scabs to pick off of my scalp
Avatar n tn Life is unpredictable--I learned that dying is not predictable either in many cases. Like the copd'er who went on and off vents and suctioned herself while watching old movies. All people who loved their lives in spite of their frailties. Thanks for the input vja and caregiver.
Avatar n tn because of my ingrown toenails, and also if I wear mascara I am forever pulling it off which my eyelashes come out as well. What is wrong with me, I feel like I'm falling apart. not only those things but not being able to sleep for more than 2 hours a night to the abcsess on my gums from a bad tooth.. The sad thing is I don't have medical insurance and no I can't get medicaid either, so I know the answer on here is usually "go see a doctor", but unfortunatly I can't.
Avatar m tn In the summer of 2009, I noticed that my finger and toenails had become white and then gradually darkened to yellow. My GP referred me to a dermatologist who didn’t know what was wrong so she called in a colleague who asked me if I had a cough, sinusitis etc. She also noticed that I had lympheodema in my ankles and then told me I had YNS. They took nail clippings and photographed fingers & toes and prescribed 6 weeks of Itraconazole.
573038 tn?1235398145 I went to my doctor and he was baffled and basically just wrote it off. Its been two years now and my health has got continuously worse. every day i experience these symptoms now.. Heart palpitations 'fluttering' in my chest. Rapid heart beat whenever i move in the slightest. Dizziness all day every day Head pain Pressure in my head like its filled up with something and about to explode Pains/tingling & numbness in both legs and arms(it varies) And face.
Avatar n tn Ive been light headed too , it started after last years (04) hurricanes, im not sure whats causing it, im not falling all over the place or anything but I do have that light headed feeling on and off, it comes and goes, the Doc thinks its anxiety and it could well be, but I cant seem to shake it off I take Generic Paxil ,it helps a bit but I still get light headed . strangely, I can relax at home and while driving and not feel a thing ?
Avatar n tn However, the benedryl helps with letting me sleep until it wears off and I am wide awake with this incredible itching, burning and tingling if I continue itching all the symptoms just intensify. We know that is not good in this case. Hope for all of us to fine solution or solutions to this issue.
Avatar n tn I am now looking back on a lot of symptoms that I and my primary care physician shrugged off at the odd symptom here and another odd symptom there...and thinking that the picture as a whole shouts "hypothyroidism." It can be an amazingly sneakly affliction. As for why all three of us might feel worse, not better, once we started taking medication, even my excellent endocrinologist wishes he knew.
Avatar f tn I hope you enjoy your CRUISE!!! That's great, try to keep your mind off of it as much as you can and pamper yourself. (although I know it's omni-present) WAKEY -- Sooooo so sorry to hear :( --- big hugs!. Sounds like you have so many eggs to draw from though --That's really amazing :) I'd love to have that! SENDING BABY DUST IN A PEACEFUL EMBRACE!!!!!
Avatar n tn I am a 52 year old female and i have been getting these broken blood vessels on and off for years. I get them on my fingers and toes. Tonight it was on my toe. My daughter who is a RN had no idea why this would happen. My father who is 83 gets this too and so does my sister in law. I am so glad to hear that others get it too. I am thin, athletic with low blood pressure. I do have low platelets and have a border line low thyroid problem. Other wise I am in good health.
1647691 tn?1363727302 (its also extremely high in caffiene- that was just an example) lol- sounds like you had a lot going on to try and keep your mind off your IVF- I truly believe the no stress helps!!
Avatar m tn Read lots of testimonials of how people get relief from mites and even some Morgellons lesions. Gonna try making a paste with this stuff and apply where itches and wash off after some time. But it can dry skin so gotta take care. God Bless you all!
