Unpropotional Body

Patient

Q: Hello, I have a medical condition where half of my body is unproportional than the other half, as if it didn't grow while the other half grew. I am a 18 years old male, and don't to seem to have other medical conditions or problems. My left arm, leg, torso and everything else is smaller than my right. I have discomfort walking due to the unproportional body portions, has prevent me from playing sports comfortably. Is there anything that I can do to have a proportional body again? I think I have an idea why this happen, because of my sleeping habits; I tend to lean towards my left side when I'm sleeping, I have tried to fix this habit as soon I noticed, but it's been years and my left side is still smaller than my right. Please help... thank you.
