My pinky toenails have fallen off on both my left and right feet. no discolouration, odor or pain, and I've not hurt my toes either.I noticed there is new nail growth when the nail fell off. I'm 19 and take good care of my body. Why could this be happenin

In brief: Not sure, pressure?

You could be placing pressure on pinky nails daily due to how you walk, what shoes you are wearing.
If new nail growing in that is good news. There was no sign of fungal infection either it sounds like.
