Does stress stunt growth?

I am 22 now and probably screwed, but can stress stunt my growth? I had a concussion when I was beat up and it made me extremely depressed. I want to know if this stunted my growth. argh!!!

I really doubt it. Your height is determined by your genes. If you are short you are just better off accepting it rather than drive yourself crazy worrying about something you have no control over....

Re: Does stress stunt growth?

It is not likely but growth hormone is secreted by your pituitary gland which is in your brain. If your pituitary were damaged in the beating it is possible. The pituitary is susceptible to damage by head trauma. You may want to ask your doctor to check your pituitary hormones, like LH, FSH, TSH, GH (growth hormone).
