Resolved Question:

My fingernails are crooked; some look almost wavy, while others looked a little bent over my fingertip on one side. It seems like one or two seemed a little crooked before, burt I don't remember the majority of them being that way. What could be causing this?

Sometimes vitamin deficiencies can cause abnormalities in your fingernails and this can be evaluated by your doctor who may need to check levels and prescribe a multivitamin or evaluate for another underlying problem. Please see your doctor to have this checked out and please let me know if you have more questions.
