Does getting alot of sleep have a big effect on your growth or height?

For the last few years i've been forced to work a lot in school and have only gotten 5 hours of sleep on a regular basis. Now everyone is taller than me and i'm tired of it.

I've tried everything over the last couple of months but nothing seems to work and i'm not getting taller. I think all these years of sleep deprivation have caught up on me and i'm gonna be short forever.

So I was just wondering if losing sleep had a really dramatic effect on height.

maybe slight, but i doubt that it has any major effect. its mostly genetics. you cant just get taller. how tall are your parents?

I have no opinion on this matter.

I'm pretty sure you grow the most when you're asleep. Either way, you should definitely be getting a good amount of sleep each night.

Yeah i'm gonna try as much as possible, it's just that these days I have no time to sleep or even relax it's usually just studying. I definitely am gonna try from now though, hopefully it's not too late to catch up on all those years of sleep.

if your mother is tall, you will probably end up being slightly taller than your dad. if she is short, you might be slightly under his hight. dont worry, youve got time. i havent stopped growing at 18.

^ Yeah I hope so, I think if I start getting more sleep and such now i'll still have a couple years to go.

When you sleep apparently you grow faster.

Without the constant force of gravity pushing down on you, your body has an easier time expanding.

So gravity goes away while you're sleeping? Do you float above your bed at night?

Instead of pushing down upon your head (the way you should be growing)it pushes on your chest/other body parts facing up

I'm somewhat short compared to my friends who claim to get 5 or less hours of sleep every night. I usually sleep around 7 a night. 9 on weekends. It's mostly in the genes, but sleep is still good for you
