A 40-year-old female asked:
Is marfans discovered @ an early age w/ symptoms seen early or can abnormal tallness come about later in life like almost 2 decades after puberty ends?

Simple answer: NO!
You are obviously very concerned and I suggest you see your primary doctor soon so that you can more fully understand what might be happening to you. Hopefully it would be a minor thing.
