What reasons would there be for someone to have a blue colored area at the base of all their fingernails? I know.. not doctors.. but perhaps someone knows enough to satisfy my curiosity? In the last year, I had an MRI, Catscan, EKG, and lab work done... all for them to tell me that I am perfectly fine! They see a healthy 23 year old.. and seemed to think I am a hypocondriac So, I would have to be unconscious for someone to drag me back into another er or doctors office! I don't need to go through all of that just to be told 'everything looks normal' yet again. Mother thought, a few days ago, that I had blue around my mouth, and was all set to take me to the doctor in the morning... but I'm not going That day, I had been working outside for a good while... and then today, after getting back from TSC and other shopping errands... I noticed in the bathroom light that the base of all my fingernails was decidly blue, and halfway up they were pink again. I feel fine and dandy otherwise... so... is it of any true import, I am wondering? Thank you, my helpful BYC friends!
