Hi all, hope all is well? Can anyone tell me if bruising under toenails are symptoms of arthritis please? Still waiting on final confirmation that the symptoms I’m experiencing such as server shoulder elbow pain, pins and needles numbness and swelling of fingers etc, have nodules on fingers and wrist, experiencing similar symptoms on ankle/foot but also have noticed bruising under toenails. Waiting on x ray results, going crazy with worry

    Hi @Redheadc 

    Welcome to the Versus Arthritis forum. 

    I see that you are awaiting the results of an x-ray which will hopefully assist with completing your diagnosis.  

    Regarding your question about bruising under the toenails, I’ve searched our website but couldn’t find anything specific however there may be other useful information there for you:


    If these are symptoms of arthritis, then hopefully other forum members will be able to provide you with some relevant feedback. 

    I hope you don’t have to wait much longer for your diagnosis. Sorry to not be able to help you more. 

    Best Wishes
