Why Are My Wrists So Small For My Height
Is lack of sleeping stunt growth or decrease height ? Does the small size in hand means that there is a growth problem?
Im 16 and just want to know do wrist builders stop growth/height? Whats the safest bodybuilding exercise i can do that doesnt stop growth or height??
You can but...: If you can find a doctor willing to order this you can but there is little point in doing so. Girls stop growing 2-3 years after their periods start; this is when the growth plates close. After this further growth is impossible. If it's been 3 years or more since puberty the x-ray will undoubtedly show that your growth plates are closed. You need to accept that you have reached full height.

Till what age does wrist circumference increase? 20, wrist size 6.7 inches,height 173 cm, ankle 8.9 inches.
Varies somewhat: The mechanism by which the circumference of the wrist increases includes the growth of the bones that make up the wrist, the joint spaces in the wrist, and also the soft tissues of the wrist as well. Bone growth in males can vary quite a bit anywhere usually between 14 and 21. Muscle and tendon size vary with use. Even elderly patients can have increase in wrist circumference due to arthritis. ...Read more

What does small and frail wrists indicate? Does it mean im still growing? No one in my family has tiny wrists except for me and my sister shes 12
Variant of normal: Small children have small wrists, but if they appear frail it is possible that the maturation is delayed. This can be determined by an x-ray of the wrist to assess the age of the wrist bones relative to your age. If there is a significant delay, a referral to a pediatric endocrinologist is appropriate. The frailness can also mean that the long bones need to be x-rayed. ...Read more

It could be some type of contact dermatitis if they come and go. Warts can appear as flesh color bumps, but usually come and don't go. The best plan is to have a doctor who knows skin problems look at them. ...Read more

Usually, this is tender to touch, firm, and may travel up the vein. Most of the time this is self-limiting, and local heat will resolve the pain.
