Hello.

These symptoms look more like peripheral neuropathy. Have you been assessed for these symptoms by a Neurologist ?

If you could not feel the pain due to the nail, it means there is numbness on the fingers. Have you checked for Diabetes ? And I would recommend a complete neurological examination at the hands of a Neurologist.

Regards
