Did you know that fibromyalgia patients have symptoms that affect their skin, nails, and hair? Do you have any of the following symptoms and suffer from fibromyalgia?
• Hair loss and painful scalp
• Nail ridges and nails that curve under
• Cuticles that are splitting
• Blotchy skin or skin tags
• Do you easily bruise or scar?
• Rashes or canker sores
Yes, fibromyalgia affects every part of your body. I have on many occasions said to my hair stylist how bothered I get when my hair gets too thick. I couldn’t really explain the feeling but it sure gets on my nerves. (Isn’t that same for most fibro symptoms?) If my stylist thins my hair, it feels like I can get some relief from that painful scalp feeling.
Doctors have several explanations as to why these symptoms are present in fibromyalgia. Theories include low blood flow or inefficient delivery of nutrients, the failure of the body to completely absorb nutrients, and cellular dysfunction, but these theories haven’t been officially confirmed by any type of research. (Isn’t that the way for fibromyalgia?)
Do you have skin, hair and nail symptoms associated with fibromyalgia. Which ones and have you been able to do anything to resolve them?
