When you press on your nail, does the pink return immediately? You can also see anemia in your gums, they'll appear pale too. It's the lack of blood flow that makes these changes

And are they curved?

I haven't seen it, I hope you don't mind my asking.

 This is great!  Unfortunately now I know I definitely need more calcium and vit a.

 Also I wanted to know about the hyrochloric acid (HCL), so I looked it up and was happy to find this.

Apple Cider Vinegar

A food source that is high in hydrochloric acid is apple cider vinegar. The website Aim for Health estimates that one to 10 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar combined with a glass of water can increase hydrochloric acid production in the body. This vinegar mixture can help you rapidly break down any food consumed during a meal. It is important to remember that drinking undiluted apple cider vinegar can burn your throat, so you should always dilute the vinegar with water or add it to a meal before ingesting it. If you experience a burning sensation in your throat while consuming apple cider vinegar, you can counteract its acidity by adding a teaspoon of baking soda to a glass of water or drinking a glass of milk.
