Any truth that rubbing of legs, sending tingles & chills thru body, causes excess growth hormone & height to increase? I'm an adult way past puberty.

In brief: No truth

There are a lot of people who want to be taller who would wish you could rub your legs and make it happen.
.. Sorry but there is no truth to that statement. As an adult the growth plates are fused and you will not be getting taller.
