Anyone on here ever have splinter hemorrhages under your fingernails since being on TKI therapy?
Splinter hemmorhages (under the fingernail)

I have them. Just checked and I see two little ones. Also, there are about a hundred very, very tiny blood blisters on my palms and the sides of my fingers at any given time. It seems they have about a three week lifespan, progressing from the formation of a red dot, then turning black until it comes to the surface and wears away. My doc says he's seen it before, only much worse than mine. They don't hurt and are barely noticeable. It's just weird.

Weird stuff happens on these TKIs. I've had a few splinter hemorrhages, usually only one or two at a time (without having injured my finger). I haven't had the blood blisters. I do have two hyper-pigmented areas; on one finger and the other on my palm just under the thumb, both similar in appearance, but different.
