2316Re: Being short
- Aug 2, 2005I'm not completely sure how much growth is affected for people with
AMC, but I am 6'1", but also my legs are not effected by AMC, only my
arms. I do find it at times frustrating though to reach higher items
like cupboards because I cannot straighten my arms all the way. My
arms (bone-wise) seem to be normal length though. There seems to be
quite a variety of specifics, on a individual basis, for people with
AMC that give us each our own individualism among AMC folk (though
that's not all that surprising).
