My Husband's right leg is reducing in size significantly. I noticed this about a year ago that the right leg was smaller in diameter than the left leg. I noticed this because he was walking infront of me and I noticed a slight limp. I asked him if he had hurt his leg and he indicated that he had not and didn't realize that he was limping. Since that time, I have periodically checked it out. Yesterday while he was standing infront of me facing me, I noticed that it is now significantly smaller in diameter than the other leg. Why would one leg reduce in size so significantly, it is approximately 3 inches smaller in diameter than the other leg and the leg that is reducing in size is the leg he uses most often? anyone have any sort of idea as to what is going on? This started out as if the calf muscle was much smaller, now it is his entire leg.
