My fingernails have been flakey for a long time, then after being diagnosed with Graves they reached a stage where they were so very short that my fingers were so painful I could barely use them. That was probably back in March, my nails although still short, have now grown long enough not to be painful, they still flake if I am not careful but they are miles better. Unfortunately my hair is still coming out in handfuls. I would have thought that if my nails were improving then so would my hair. Anyone got the same problem?
