I am 59 and a women.About 1 year ago I noticed my legs and arms were getting thinner.I feel they neither one have any muscle left.My left leg has a dent in it like it was hit my a baseball.Not sure why it is like that.I still weight the same but I know mmy limbs are thinner.Also I always am eating but really do not weight anymore.Could it be cancer?Eating my muscle away?I am scared but have no insurance so I am not sure of what to do.

  • Do you have any other symptoms besides muscular atrophy and muscle thinning? What is your diet like? Do you take protein in your diet?
