Horizontal Ridges on fingernails!!!?
« on: December 31, 2013, 01:27:42 PM »
I'm back again... ugh.. recently started noticing that my fingernails have horizontal ridges on them especially on my thumbnails and I went and googled it. Does anyone know if stress/anxiety could cause this?? I'm freaking out. They aren't coloured or anything just bumps on the nail itself.

You should make an appointment with your doc.  While Beau lines can be caused by a zinc deficiency, they're also related to diabetes and peripheral vascular disease, mumps, pneumonia, etc.  Its probably the zinc but get it checked out and let us know who you make out.
