Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns.

I went through your problem description. I suggest you not to go into self diagnosis or search for something which is unknown in internet, because these may misguide you. And self diagnosis can be dangerous.

Secondly, Indentation on your skin arises out of skin edema and it happens due to several health and skin conditions. Therefore, instead of worrying about what might be the reason behind the indentation. you should releive your pressure by consulting a doctor immediately.

Hope this clears your doubt. Available for further clarifications.
Good luck.
