The problem becomes particularly annoying with one's toes. If your toe bones grow quicker than your toes' tendons, your toes won't be able to extend as they should and eventually your toes will curl (kind of like making a fist with your hand, but with your foot). Fortunately, the condition is repairable, but the surgery is nothing short of brutal.

My husband's nephew is tall: 6'7" and counting!
**Warning: if you have a sensitive stomach, you might want to stop here!!** Apparently there is a hazard to growing so tall too quickly: occasionally your bones outgrow your tendons. This is a problem.
