Yellowish Finger Tips And Nails?

i am new to e-health. I've have been dx. With hypo-thyriodism , fibromyalia, and osto-arthritis. In the last four months i've notice that my
finger tips and nails have been turning a yellowish color. This happens over night and goes away sometime within the same day. I have also had
stomach pain that raidiants acrossed my rib cage. The doctors don't know what the problem in yet . I've been so sick. Most days its not so bad but in the last week it's been hard to work. I just want all of this to go away.
Has anyone ever heard of these symtoms?

One of the most common causes of yellow nails is a fungal infection. As the infection worsens, the nail bed may retract, and nails may thicken and crumble.

In rare cases, yellow nails can indicate a more serious condition such as severe thyroid disease, lung disease, diabetes or psoriasis.

It would be recommended that you consult a dermatologist and seek a proper medical opinion.
