okay, first off for the past 3 months ive been losing alot of weight... and fast... ive dropped almost 30 pounds in 3 months... simply by sitting on my @ss gorging on food. I havent been excercizing and have never lost weight like this before... im constantly tired... i feel exhausted every waking minute... my muscles hurt when i simply do little things like cleaning.. holding a baby... anything not too strenuous... and when i wake up after doing such things i feel like ive been hit by a truck. i get so sore.. my biggest concern is my nails... they have changed color. they are really pale almost white.. and some of them have horizontal stripes under the nail bed... aswell as all my finger nails AND toe nails have "beau's lines" all across them... deep horizontal indents in my nails... I've been kinda concerned since im only 22 yrs old. ive gone for every type of blood work u can think of... and its all come back positive... everything in my blood in fine.. aswell.. as my thyroid.. and kidneys are functioning properly... if my blood work is all fine.. wth is causing my nails to do this.. and why am i dropping so much weight so fast... any ideas? the doctors are baffled... and concerned.. but unsure what to check for.
