In brief: ? Acromegaly

Hello Samah. It is not possible for one to grew taller after age 18 and closure of epiphysis .
Oversecretion of growth hormone from pituitary gland can cause gigantism before age 18 and acromegaly after age 18 . If you are experiencing change in ring size or shoe size then testing IGF-1 level is recommended to rule that out .
