I guess, if u were three feet when u got diarrhea, and u r 5 feet now, there is no question of "growth stopping!"

I would like to know more about your limbs being "not straight" - is it curved or does it have sharp angulations? How tall are your parents? If everybody in your family is around 5 feet, i guess u don't have any problems to start with
