I have had osteoarthritis throughout my body for many years now, and had knee replacement surgery last September. I have recently noticed that 2 finger nails on each hand are pulling away from the fingers. It is the two small fingers that are affected, but there are signs that it is spreading to the middle fingers as well. A friend suggested this may be caused by arthritis, and I wanted to ask your advice. I already have arthritis in the thumb joints, which get very painful. Could this be connected?
I would welcome your thoughts.
