What Causes Large Indention Of Right Calf Muscle?

default
Posted on Wed, 18 Mar 2015
Question: What would cause a large indention of my right calf muscle? I should also add that I experience severe "Charlie horses" in my right foot, nearly every night. My health is not great, with COPD, Asthma, Fibromyalgia, high blood pressure, high cholesterol .. Oh, & Basel & Squamous cell carcinoma on the tip of my nose. I was diagnosed on November 18th, but due to circumstances beyond my control, it has been cancelled 3 times! Hopefully I'll be having the Mohs surgery in April 2015 ... could that be the reason why I'm so tired all the time?
Thank you!
