Does anyone have dented and discoloured fingernails? I am just wondering what this means. I’ve been going through a flareup and I feel that these ‘indentations’ happened during the flareup and could be a clue as to what was going on in my body. Any and all feedback is welcome. Just some background information, believe it or not I am still waiting to get diagnosed with dermatomyositis. I also have some eye inflammation, redness, dryness, sensitivity to light in my eyes oh and purple swollen eyelids which coincides with dermatomyositis. and I am waiting to see an ophthalmologist. It could be uveitis and the timing seems to correlate with my symptoms - my flareups mostly in the evenings and overnight.
