welcome to healthcaremagic
for so many years you are thinking that your body is not proportionate
you are 5'5 ,that may be quite normal
if you had any problem ,your parents by this time would have consulted physicians
may be you are too worried
it is high time you should consult physician and get a
physical check up to know the fact and get advice if at all required
if you have some problem ,it can be taken care of once your condition is diagnosed

Firstly, I dont see ny reason for you to get worried. Dr Ghosh has given you a very good answer. However I would like to ask if you are a male?

5'5'' for a nineteen yr old is NOT MUCH. As regards one's head one has to look at your heredity. At your age people who are crude or insensitive will comment on all other people and you should NOT let that effect you. Everyone has a different growth profile depending on a lot of factors.

Like Dr Ghosh said take a local good doctor's advice. If you let me know the city you are in I could perhaps suggest something.

And remember you are as UNIQUE and special as anyone else.

my granddaughter almost 7 years of age in October is abnormally tall. She wears size 11 year or 12 year old size. Her parents will not tell me how tall she is exactly she lives in another country. She is not overweight. In proportion with a child s tummy. I am worried she may have early puberty syndrome, where she is taller now but will stop growing if she gets early menustration

I am a regular opiate user, and a reguar xannax user. I use the xannax for legitimate purposes and have a legitimate perscription and take about 2-3.5 mg per day. As far as opiates go I use 30-50 mg of oxy or hydro per day. This is illegitamete use and admittaly a horrible habit that does not help with my implied anxiety problem (i.e. reason I take xannax) I have never used methadone before today and took 25 mg which I guess is a little high for the amount of opiate I normally take, and considering methadone has a longer life in your system. The concern is I had no idea that xannax and methadone had a bad interaction with eachother until reading horror stories on google. Many people say they are fine with it as long as they do not take them at the same exact time, but everbody I found that said this had a tolerance to Methadone and were regular methadone users. I posted this question to a doctor on here and discovered that methadone and opiods have a cross tolerance so being that I am a regular opiod user I should be in the same boat as the regular methadone user. Also, I oubviously have a tolerance to xannax. So I also discovered that even though I am feeling tired, a little dizzy which could be caused by alot of missing sleep, I will probably not go to sleep and not wake up again. The information in blogs seems so unreliable, and there are so many different opinions so it was nice to talk to a doctor that could provide at least a few clear answers, Although, I probably still will not get any sleep tonight, cause I am scared that it could still happen. I thought I would post this info out there for anyone with the same situation.
