    irregular nail growth on each nail

    Hi everyone,

    I have searched and searched and can't seem to find anyone who has this problem (normal for me, lol).

    My the corners of my fingernail will be even (a nice round nail, not to close on the edges like they tell you to do).

    Then hours later or when I wake up, the corners are like 1/16 to 1/8 inches longer (so my nail is like a wave in and out in length.

    It doesn't sound like an issue, but I constantly catch it on clothes, and I have to carry around, and use, an emery board all day, to file them as even as I can. Sometime, the nail next to the longer section grows slower, so it is too close to the skin.

    I hope I am describing this so people can understand. I would attach an image if I could (it's not gross looking, just irregular). All the other nail issues I have seen posted I don't have. And with my physical issues, I get bloodwork, and other tests regularly.

    One note: I did have Gastric Bypass (the weight loss operation) 15 years ago. And a side effect is we have a really tough time converting protien to iron. So every few years, I have to get iron infustions (4 weeks worth). My last bloodwork showed my iron really low, and I got my infusions in January and now my bloodwork is textbook. But the irregular nail length growth is still there.

    I appreciate any help,
