Nail clubbing...anyone had this? If so, what caused it?!

Been to the docs (again) and I definitely have nail clubbing on my fingers...he's referred me for further tests but didn't seem sure about what would be causing it. If anyone has had this/currently has this and wouldn't mind sharing the cause I'd be very grateful! Tia

I haven't had it and I'm not any kind of health professional, but I believe it can be associated with some diseases of the lungs and/or heart, which alter the blood supply to the fingers or toes.

Thanks, yeah they are the only causes I've heard of...hoping that isn't the case though!
