i've not been posting for a long long time, i hoped i have stopped with fear and today i have a little fear back, so i ask for your help :-) !
I'm actually pregnant for my fouth baby and i think it could modify my judgment, as i'm very sick (nauseas eand so one from weeks) , i've left 4 kilogrammes since i'am pregnat two months ago.

So, i noticed my right calf mesured 31 cm of circonference and my left 32. It is very possible it used to be, my left leg was my "jumping led" when i practised gymnastics for years. When i cross the leg, i always put left leg under so maybe it could explain. I do not feel weekness, the left calf is just a little more with muscle than right.

Have you experienced same asymmetry ? Does is be different from atrophy ?

Thank you for reading. Excuse my english, i'm french :-) !

Hi wookiette,

I had similar issues 15 months ago when my fear started and i was checking everything.
I am right footed but my left calf was 41cm and the right 40cm... Sometimes the difference was 0.5cm or 0.8cm but i was obsessed and was checking it all the time.
Bottom line now this difference is still the same so it means that this has always been the case.
