Side effects from doing acrylic nails?

a friend has been doing acrylic nails for about 20 years...she has developed crippling problems and is bent over in pain and her body is even twisting...the doctors can't find anything..someone suggested to her that maybe the acrylic nail dust and chemicals over the years has caused her some nerve damage..( she never wore a mask)..has anyone any information as to whether this is possible..

Re: Side effects from doing acrylic nails?

part of the being bent over in pain....could be from poor posture doing nails...has she seen a physical therapist?...they can help you strengthen your muscles & help your posture...unsure of long term chemical effects...when I went to nail school my teacher had been doing them 20 or 30 years...& didn't have alot of problems...acted like she was on something most of the time ...but that was besides the
Hope she's feeling better..
