23 years old and getting shorter?
« on: March 04, 2014, 04:04:43 PM »
I used to measure 5' 11" tall in high school. Recently I went to the dr for a EMG and they measured my height. I was shocked when they said I was 5' 10.5".  How did I loose .5" already in my early 20's? This seems very uncommon. Should I be worried?

I wouldn't be worried. Scales can be off, people can estimate (maybe you actually were 5"10.75, or 5"10.85, but they rounded down because you weren't quite 5"11...and maybe in high school they rounded up?)

When someone asks how tall I am now do I say 5 foot 10 1/2 inches or round up or down to the nearest inch? It feels weird saying 5 foot 10 and 1/2" inches.

Could have been standing differently.  A little bit of a slouch could do that.   I'd just say 5'11".  Stand real straight, shoulders back, head up and you'll BE 5'11  :happy0151:

I'm about 5'3.75, so I usually put that I'm 5'3.
