How short do you have to be to be a "official midget" or "legal dwarf"?

I'm 16 years old, and I'm 3'9" and 49 pounds. Would I be either of those? I'm smaller than anyone I know. Could I get a handicap sticker if I was, or disability checks?

    that does seem short for 16, how about the rest of your family? have you been tested? your doctor is really the best place for answers...

    We don't see doctors, we have freaky herbal dudes. xD I have a strange family. Can you go without health insurance?
    But my parents are fairly short, my dad is like 5'7", and I'd say my mom is 5'1". Not near close to me though.

    I was reading through that... If I did have dwarfism, it would be proportionate dwarfism. I don't have weird sized limbs or anything. (;

    you may be a slow grower too... I know someone who didnt grow till he was about 18, he stayed short though not quiet that short until he was out of high school then he just shot up...

    That'd be good. (:
    It seems like everyone's hit their growth spurt but me, haha.
