Does anyone have trouble with horizontal nail bulges/ridges? These go from side to side - not nail bed to tip. I just noticed both my thumbs have this large bulge under them...weird. Didn't know if it was a lupus kind of thing. It's not a line but like a hump. You can see and feel it.
Just another weird lupus thing?
Thanks for your Reply!
