    Howdy ,

    I have noticed some of the fingers on my left hand tend to wrinkle up late in the day ( the right hand stays perfectly smooth ) . My left most figernail has also developed alot of "pitting" - small holes allover. The left side of my body experiences most/all of my pain. Has anyone else seen such finger wrinkles/fingernail problems ?

    Cheers,

    Gareth

    Fingernails are a feature that quickly indicates overall health. Usually fingernail anomalies are due to nutritional deficiencies. Are you taking vitamins and mineral supplements? Do you have problems with absorption, such as IBS and or leaky gut, and are not absorbing nutrients well?

    Is there swelling in the fingers that you see wrinkling in?
    As to indicate water retention (can't imagine just a couple of fingers involved, though)

    Is there any numbness, or tingling in those fingers?
