Discomfort in nail beds

This may seem like trivial question, but it is one I would like answered and who better to ask than my Sisters?
My Mom and I both have the need at time to massage our cuticles/nailbeds on our fingers. Is this a sign of a circulatory problem or a symptom of any conditions/disease. This may sound like an odd question, but sometimes our nailbeds are achy.
Does anyone have this discomfort. I keep forgetting to ask the doctor.
Thanks Sisters!

Discomfort in nail beds

Hi SPR this is a tough one! There are a couple of things that come to mind. One is that discomfort in the nail beds can be a sign of swelling in the hands, especially from some type of arthritic condition or fibromyalgia. However, it's odd that your mom and you would both be experiencing this at the same time.

The other is that infected nail beds can be a manifestation of thrush (basically a yeast, or Candida albicans, infection). Are your nail beds red and inflamed looking? That might be an indication.

I would definitely ask your DR to have a look at your hands (and your mom's) and see what he/she thinks. And please let us know what you find out, now I'm curious!
