A 40-year-old female asked:
Are there any conditions besides acromegaly that cause 39yo who reached adult height yrs ago to suddenly grow again couple inches w/no other synptoms?

Height spurt : Acromegaly never causes a increase in height at your age. So either you are wearing high heels or your measuring system is off.
