Want to increase height, deprived of sleep since days. Do I stand a chance?

I am desperately in need to gain my height. I am between 5 1 and 5 2 , but i want to gain my height up to 5 6 . I am turning 17 next week. I researched that I need sufficient amount of sleep, but because of the classes I have at school, I haven t been able to sleep enough since my junior year started. Is it possible or I have no hope?

Hello user,
There are few adults who gain height a bit later in life, you have to wait for 1-2 years more to see for any height gain spurt. after that only you should take some drugs etc to gain height.

Stretching exercise, yoga and sleep are just supportive to growth spurt.

hope my info helped you
