taking a guess

June 5, 2008 at 1:19 am

I haven’t had any problems with my fingernails, but my skin is dry and flaky all over. I never noticed this before i got sick. Been wondering if my illness could have something to do with it. It makes sense that a neurological condition wouldn’t directly affect the hair/skin/nails, but one can’t help but wonder.

I do, though, remember searching several neuromuscular disease websites and finding atleast one that had dry, flaky skin listed as a symptom. Hmmm? Maybe it was ALS? I don’t remember, but i know it was neuromuscular.

Like one of you said though, maybe it is a nutritional issue. Don’t know about you guys, but my nutrition has been a concern. Too sick to eat, plus no appetite, and, when i do try to eat, it take every ounce of energy and oxygen i can muster up, jsut to take two bites! Then i choke! Ugh!

Im going to research this and see what i come up with! I’m more curious now!
