    what's wrong with my nails?


    Last year I discovered small black streaks in my fingernails which later spread to my toenails and I had quite a few of them. I mean, one day they were just there! And during this period I felt really tired and experienced a lack of energy plus I lost a lot of hair (I still do) Anyway, about well maybe three months after I first had discovered the black streaks (splinter hemorrhages?) my toenails got these deep grooved ridges, horizontal ridges and I developed dents on my thumbnails...although the ridges are better now and less visible, I still have them. And for a month ago I stated to get the black lines under my nails again. I dunno, lot's of doctors keep saying that it's nothing to worry about but I do!

    Thank you!

    Hi, I don't mean to scare you but from what I read black streaks indicate heart problems. Please see your doctor.
