Will partial paralysis and nerve damage cause flattening of finger nails?

what would cause fingernails to start flattening out? or would certain meds cause it? and I had partial paralysis in one leg, including nerve damage, and the toenails on that foot changed, is that from the nerve damage, or the paralysis and muscle atrophy?

HI
Thank for asking to HCM
What ever the conditions you have described here these all are not related with the finger nail problem this could be fungal infection of nail and this should be ruled out and for that it need to be examined clinically hope this information helps you have nice day.
