How does a healthy 25 year old loose 2 inches of hight in 3 years?

This scares the crap out of me because it is happening to ME! I went from 5'7 to 5'5 and a half.

  • I would talk to a doctor and get tested for bone and back problems, assuming they didn't measure you wrong the first time around. That big of a difference though I'd assume they didn't. Good luck!
