    On my left hand....small finger and ring finger......my finger nails go back and forth from being straight and "normal" to curling right over on to the top on my fingers and laying on top of my fingers.

    Little while later they will slowly go back to normal and a little while later you can watch them again slowly curl back.

    Anyone have a idea why?????????

    I am more amused than concerned...........Susan

    Hi sues

    I'm not sure about this, but I do remember reading somewhere that verticle ridges on your nails are common with FM and are a sign of endocrine imbalance.

    Sorry, dont know about the curling ones, but it could be a good place to start your research.

    Cheers

    but here is a couple of sites for nail disorders you can check out if you want.

    Thanks!! I've wanted to find a site like that for ages.

    Years ago a doc studied my fingernails (I was about 19) and told me to always have a test for Lupus done each year no matter where we were. (military)

    I've always been curious to know what he saw that day.

    Thanks again,

    My nails are now wavy and not straight. They also have a lot of pits in them.

    My dermatologist said that I had nail psorosis.

    I also have a lot of ridges, but I think that comes with age!

    My doctor told me it was due to my endochrine imbalance (pituitary, thyroid and adrenal dysfunction). I am on hormones but haven't noticed any changes with my nails although my eyelashes have grown back and my leg hairs are starting to grow again.

    I have that, and my dermatologist says it is a form of psoriasis.

    My father had the scaley type, so I can believe it.
