    Does anyone know why my fingernails have begun to have vertical ridges along the entire length?

    Some say fingernail abnormalities  can be a sign of a health problem.  I've never had this happen before.  I take vitamins, eat protein and am not asthmatic. Could this be related to the arthritis I've developed in my hands?

    If it were me, I would consider some of these answers to your findernails, but I would definitely seek the advise of your private doctor. I have ridges in all my nails because I suffer from Rheumatic Disease and it caused my nails to have ridges and calcium deposits on the nails. I must keep my nails cust short all of the time. You can also go to a dermatologist as well.

      Thanks so much rzaraya - After your answer, I did an Internet search . I have the symptoms of Psoriatic Arthritis and this must be one of the signs a dr. would look for.   You've been a big help.
