Did I get taller or did my mother get shorter?

I was 5"4 and about 1-2 inches shorter than my mom 8 years ago and now I am 1-2 inches taller than her so either she got shorter or I got taller. About 2 years ago, my mother got into an accident while she was on vacation and she claims this caused her to become shorter and my dad says I'm the same height that I was before so did I get taller or did my mom get shorter? My mom damaged one of her back bones while on a very bumpy machine during a whale watching session and I don't think this break would cause her to lose 1-2 inches because it was half of one of her bones. Did she get shorter or did I get taller?

  • If the height difference is that notable, you should get it checked out.

    Only a doctor can tell you if it is ok or not.
