I was wondering if anyone else gets splinter hemmorhages underneath their fingernail and/or toenails? Mine come and go and I am concerned as to why they are appearing.
My hemotologist (who has not picked up on the extent of what APS can do), was concerned about endocarditis and had me do a cardiac ultrasound, which came back negative. They were looking for what is called "vegetation" and found nothing. I think their focus was on the valves in the heart.
So my hemotologist didn't have much of an answer as to why I keep getting them. At the time, my INR seemed consistent to him so he wasn't concerned.
Does anyone else out there know other ways these things might develop?
I am really worried because, as I know, splinter hemmorhages are clots that have settled out in the nail beds. My reasoning tells me that they could be settling out elsewhere in my body as well!! That's unerving and makes me concerned I could be experiencing damage I am not aware of.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much folks!
