Abnormally skinny


Q: Dear doctor. I have an extremely skinny and bony body. I have noticed that I am much skinnier than everyone around me.My arms and legs are very skeletal. I cant fit into a lot of clothes because im so skinny. I know a lot of people would say just work out but i believe its a serious problem. Im 6ft and my arms and legs are exceptionally long with a very small torso. Id like to know if i have a disorder or abnormality. Im healthy and i never get sick, but this problem is weighing me down. People laugh at my appearance.Please help me.
