Re: Have you gotten taller?

I was around 6ft 1 before and now I'm 6ft 4. I feel very tall and I love it! Waking round with my chest pumped out and shoulders back feels great.

Re: Sneezing?

I've not had a proper sneeze in two months. It's only the past few weeks that I've been able to sneeze without my back going into spasm. Now it's more like a cough. You just have to try and brace...
