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.

Hi MJ,
If I’m not mistaken, those horizontal ridges are Beau’s lines.  They occur when you’ve had a bad bout of illness. I recall those being mentioned on the forum before, here’s the post:-

Hey your fingernails look like mine!  I also get small roundish pale coffee coloured marks on my nails - weird.
