    Shrinking at a young age...

    I will be going to the doctor asap, but unfortunately the way things are it will be some time. My issue is I have noticed that I seem a little shorter, I measured myself this morning and found that to be true. I had somebody else measure my height and they ~measured me the same as I did.

    I know my height was over 5 foot 6 inches, nearly 5' and 6.5". My height is now at 5'5.5" nearly an inch smaller and less than two years later. I had an office visit last year but was measured with shoes on so it is not a good comparison.

    I know with such a height decrease at the age of 30 something serious is wrong, but what are some of the likely issues with somebody my age?
