Iim close to thirty. My half body parts are adult size and some half are like child size. I look abnormal. My size is hard to find anywhere.
See your doctor...: Have you been to a doctor since puberty? It would be abnormal to have half of your body remain "child sized" & the other half grow normally. It is hard to imagine that if your appearance is as dramatically imbalanced as your description that it wasn't noted by a physician in previous exams. See your doctor to evaluate your concerns and determine if any medical workup for cause needs to be done. ...Read more

You should see your dr or a neurologist for evaluation & possibly blood & imaging studies to see what is causing the symptoms you describe. ...Read more

What are signs and is there any thing a person can take that's natural to find out if they have intestinal paricites?
Real science: I would only accept a diagnosis of intestinal parasites if it were made by a competent lab on a stool specimen. There are many websites that suggest that huge numbers of people in the developed world are sick primarily because of parasites that evidence-based medicine isn't finding. I don't believe this and would urge you to be skeptical as well. ...Read more
