I have noticed lumps and indents on all my nails above the half moon, this is new. I read on the internet this can be due to arthritis and I read Colitis can cause joint/bone pain/arthritis.
 
Anyone else with this issue?
 
Still trying to get down to the bottom of my issues.

Is it one nail or all? If it was one nail, you can probably count the times you actually bump it. My left thumb nail takes a beating.

If you're hard on your nail beds if you self-manicure or consistently trim the cuticles, you'll easily get horizontal ridges.

If you've been sick or had a fever, all the nails will have ridges once they grow out.

Its on every nail. It was never there before all of my issues. They either have indents or bumps, almost like bubbles under the nail. Not from manicures, I get my nails done one every three months and do not paint them. I do my toes every other week though I do not see this issue on my toe nails.

Is this linked to arthritis?
