I have painful nails, deformed nail beds, sometimes get splinter hemorrages under them, those come and go, they are vertically with a indented line run down them, and are like washboards. The cutilcles around them get sore, peal, or are painful. My toes are normal, but they are half pink and half white, meaning I can't see the moon on them anymore. I have raynauds phenomenon, but I don't know if it is kidney failure, something with the lungs( if I have any of that it is just pleurisy) I have gotten swelling of the lower legs off and on and a distended stomach with bloating...I am kind of scared I may have lung, liver, or kidney disease started...does anyone know what this would mean, and what I should do. my doctors ignore them every time I show them those.
