Has anyone had any odd symptoms with their nails and POTS?

Lately I've noticed some black lines that grow vertically down my nails on my hands. Can POTS cause this or any medication? They look like the pictures for splinter hemorrhages online.

Thanks!

I recently noticed a couple of nails with large white blotches. not the small white spots everyone gets. Noticed this right after having the flu. Also after I became ill..no more moons at the base of my nails except on one thumb. Well that's my nail update. :)

I get splinter haemorrhages and I have done for years,  but mainly ridged nails and splits.  I have vertical ridges on my finger and toe nails. The nails are thinner and more brittle.

Splinter haemorrhages  came on in 1984 after Glandular Fever (EBV) and you can get them when your health is taking a nosedive, heart conditions, bad circulation etc and if you smoke.

When I first got sick, 10 years ago, I was having symptoms of erythromelelgia, and my nail were coming apart. They were literally coming unlayers like some kind of flakey dough, it was so weird and no doctor ever could find out why. Oddly enough my nails are fine now.
