HI...

Just wondering if anyone else have or had this kind of problem with your finger nails..
About a year ago I had gel coated nails, never had a problem until a few months ago..
I began to notice that my nails(only 3)on each hands began to lift from it's nail bed..
I've stopped using the gel nails and now I get a regular manicures every 2 weeks.(keeping my nails short)

I'm just confused, could this problem be my illness or meds.
I did start on Cimza 4 months ago, before that I was on Remicaide..

Any input would be helpful!!

That's pretty typical of PsA

My nails lift from the nail bed too - worse on my toe nails. And yes, it is common with PsA.
