I have been in the Army for 18 years now. Over my time, I noticed several people with these dark lines on their nails. In 2003, I began to see a faint pinkish line, run through my thumb nail. Over time, it became black and ugly!
I am embarrassed by it and I hold my hand down all the time. I had enough last night and I looked it up. It's called hemmorage splinters. They may come from several different things, such as blood clots, insufficient blood flow, etc. I did read, however, that it may be related to the heart. For that reason, I am taking a visit to the doctor tomorrow. There seems to be no treatment for these ugly lines, so maybe, I can get some answers on the condition that causes them. I will stay in touch.
