This is a weird one...both thumbnails dented?
« on: February 10, 2014, 10:34:13 PM »
So, it's as it sounds--both of my thumbnails have dents in them in roughly the same spot. I read this could be something called "Beau's lines," which can indicate "serious disease" (!!!) but I wasn't sure if they had to be on every finger. These are simply on my thumbnails.

I'll be honest, I haven't done so hot lately. My anxiety has been kind of high...I'm still worried about lymphoma due to some ache/soreness I've had off and on in my lower back/upper abdomen for...months and months now (since the summer).

Anyway, any insight? Please convince me I'm just overreacting here.

I have dents in my thumbnails too but don't even want to know what disease you're referring to lol. Jeez, google really is a nightmare if even a fingernail can bring up the cause of a serious illness.
Definitely not being rude here, I've been struggling with googling too and I think this proves how crazy some of those search results are.

Dents or ridges in nails can be caused by many things. The most common causes are stress, dryness, biting nails or a vitamin (iron or B12) deficiency.

Google is the enemy! It can convince anyone that they have something awful.

So try not to worry too much.

I have had the same thing for years and my internal medicine physician and dermatologist said
it was nothing to be concerned about.

I guess I forgot to mention it's been that way for a while now. Like, years maybe. So maybe this is just normal for me. Well, good to know I'm not the only one, then!
