Antiinflammatories help, or ice. The mid calf pain could be posterior tibial tendinitis - the tendon that holds up your arch. This tendon and plantar fasciitis are related. Try an arch support

What are the causes of hair loss on your legs?

What are the causes of hair loss on your legs?

Age, vein, artery, diab: As we age leg hair seems to become more sparse with thinner shafts. This may be accelerated by diseases that affect the large & small arteries & veins of the legs where either less blood flows in or the outflow of blood is too slow due to small valve leakage. Diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, venous stasis, heart valve problems, & skin diseases such as scleroderma may be involved.
