    Hello, Sorry about this. How long have you noticed this growth activity? If you don't mind, I will like see an image of this growth. It will help me in knowing exactly what's going on. Is your back foot and knee swollen too? I will await your reply

    I don't mean swollen. I am talking about increase in height. I am embarrassed to notice that I was increasing in height, mostly in legs when growth activities should have ended by 18.

    Hello, Now I understand. I won't be able to help you with that. At least not on this platform. You have to see a Doctor for you to be evaluated for a condition called Marfan syndrome. It is the condition that can explain what you are going through. Since I won't be able to examine you fully, you should see your Doctor. Take care
