hair loss on left calf

From the shin to the calf on my left leg the hair is thin and short, and right in the middle there is almost no hair. My right leg is completely normal. Does anyone else have this symptom? Any suggestions

Hi there.

Same here. Just on the outside and just the left leg.

This happened suddenly when my symptoms worsened in 1997.

I'm pretty sure its not a mechanical effect like friction due to habitually crossing my legs as its in the wrong place for that.

I very vaguely recall something perhaps relating it to adrenal issues but my memory may be wrong on that.

Sorry I can't help more but in the great scheme of things I've long written it down as just another of those things.
