Doc(s), I got a question that ya'll might be interested in.
It has to do with my calves, now, I know they're called "the second heart" for a reason, and everything cardiac checks out beautifully on me.
However, there are constant, tiny spasms going on--localized just there, it's almost interesting to watch.
Whenever I'm sitting you can see them (I don't know if they occur while I'm standing, because I can't see them, and I haven't asked anyone to look). They don't bother me, and I can't feel them, but they are there.
I'm just wondering if in your extensive experience and training if there is any kind of odd thing you can think of that can cause this.
I'm great at mineral intake, supplementation (zinc 50mg/day, copper 2mg/day, magnesium 500mg/day), and absorption, and I can tell within 3-4 days if I'm not taking them.
This has been occurring for as long as I can remember post-puberty, also, I get nasty---nasty cramps if I plantarflex, as in within 5 to 8 seconds, I've spent many-a-morning jumping out of bed, putting my hands on a wall to use my weight to dorsiflex, which solves the problem fairly quickly, however once it's started it's crazy sensitive to cramp up again.
I'm not that worried about it, just throwing it out there.
