I know diabetes can cause poor circulation, as can peripheral vascular disease, so you might want to get blood sugar and cholesterol levels checked & get checked for infection ASAP!  Also, please get your iron and ferritin levels checked.  A website has this to say about fingernails: that a fingernail with raised ridges, thin, and curved inward has an association with iron deficiency anemia.
