I have just popped off my second toenail in a month's time.  Humm think it is the MTX.

Ummm I have never heard of this for Crohn's. I've always lost the big toe nail on my left foot every random amount of months since birth but that's because of a birth defect on the toes of my left foot. They're completely normal except for the nature of the toenails...
I hope it doesn't hurt??? Mine never does but I think this must be rather different..I hope it's nothing serious :(

the nailbed hurts, but I just cover it with a band aid. I have noticed with the MTX that my hair and nail are rather brittle, even with taking folic acid (injection and pills).

does it hurt? is it infected? I popped some toenails after my marathons (all of them in fact). The big toes did not like the distance, no matter the size, shoe type, sock, etc. Yet run countless other distances less than 20 miles and no prob. Okay, going off topic...hated it when it toenails came off. So unlady like, you know smilewinkgrin

I totally forgot about that. I have really intensive pt and that might be part of the problem. Thanks becoming undone.

Still active or reserve? What did you do for PT?
Toenails though...may be due to drug, PT, and nutrition...just a guess...
btw, I was once part of the never again volunteer yourself team...PN3 when I left...reserve, never active duty...really miss it though...no ocean here
Hope your toenails get better...
kwell that you were still able to give it your all in PT...still dreaming about running (the elliptical is the closest thing I get to it)...
