About two months ago I realized my fingernails were yellow, went to the doctor and she gave me hydrocortisone cream as she thought it was a reaction to something. A few weeks after that I noticed that my toenails were yellow as well, so I starting putting the cream on them as well. Currently my finger and toe nails are still yellow, recently I have been feeling just drained, like I dont have the energy to make supper for my family or even play with my daughter, the other day I had two naps of an hour and a half and still slept 9 hours at night. I woke up this morning with the worst sore throat I have ever had so, when my husband got home from work I had him take a flashlight and see if there was anything strange. There are a few white dots at the back of my throat and a few red dots on the roof of my mouth, it also appears as though the back of my tongue and the roof of my mouth and a tinge yellow now as well. I should mention that I am currently taking amitriptyline for migraines and cipralex for anxiety. I went to a medicentre tonight and the doc told me that the red on the roof of my mouth are burst blood vessels, that she was going to refer me to a dermatologist for my fingernails and took a swab of my throat. I am curious if all these things could somehow be linked and if I have reason to be concerned as I have never experienced anything remotely similar to this. If anyone has any information, please let me know as I am a wee bit freaked out!!!!
