    The growth sprut is a period of rapid growth that generally occurs around puberty snd early adolescence. Characterised by increased height and sexual maturity features. At 17yrs, most people should have hit their growth sprut

    With the bone pains you have at times, i'm beginning to wonder what your genotype is? That said, i suggest you visit a Dr for proper evaluation. I assume that you don't have problems with your nutrition

    my blood group is AA and genotype is A+. the pain mostly is on my shoulder, waist, neck and leg. although it's all over but those are the parts where it occurs most.

    Not trying to be a pessimist but it would be nice to have your genotype rechecked; just to be double sure. That said, you shojlc still see a Dr fof s full evaluation
