I've noticed that I haven't been able to keep nails in three years. I have moved from the Midwest to Texas and was believing that it was the climate change that was causing the nail breakage and cracks. Texas is a more dryer atmosphere than the Midwest. However, I just Googled lupus and nail loss and have read at least one article where it indicates that nail loss and other nail problems are common for a lupus patient. I don't recall that ever being a complaint out here on this forum. Have any of you all been having problems with nail cracks and breaking?
By the way, I love this forum and the people out here. I have gotten more accurate information from you than my own rheumatologists.
