nails curling and bending on sides???

Hey everyone!

What do you think of this? Within the last several months, I have noticed that my nails are taking on a strange behavior They grow well but are bending or curling on the sides as they grow. I don't have a problem with them being dry, cracked, brittle...just bending downward as they grow? I have read about hypothyroidism and nail problems...anyone else have this issue?

If you have thyroid problems, it will effect your nails as well. Persons with Thyroid problems can experience all sorts of nail problems, including the nail plate separating from the nail bed if you even so much as wear nail polish on a continuing basis. See your doctor about the changes in the nail plate. Any change in the nail plate is cause for concern.
