    Numbness in calf to my ankle...anyone?

    About 3 weeks ago I noticed a indent on my calf; almost like the muscle simply disappeared; its about twice the size of a quarter. The area is completely numb and the numbness has now spread down the length of my leg to the ankle.
    Today I noticed slight discoloration in the indent area -

    There is no tenderness or pain but the numbness or lack of sensation is becoming more apparent.

    Anyone had anything similar?

    Pretty strange. I'd ask your family doctor about that.

    Did you have any injury there recently?

    Go to the doc that is nothing to take lightly..may be nothing but sounds very strange. I had numbness leg and foot (as if foot was asleep) when my foot was down for a bit but not so much anymore.

    It almost sounds like torn achilles, as it can leave an indentation if torn completely. But I can't IMAGINE not having excrutiating pain with that.
