Question: Sudden weight gain


 doctorcare - Sun Dec 30, 2007 2:40 pm

I am 33 years old woman ad have a 9 years old son. I have suddenly started gaining weight from past 4 months speacially on my stomach. I also feel hungary very often. I dring atleast 2-3 ltrs of water a day. I have never doen any exercises as I work for around 12 hrs a day ( most of it on computer). After every meal I feel so full that it becomes difficult for me to breath. Even though I feel hungary, I control my diet. I have started having shortness of breath. Not sure which doctor should I consult. Is this problem related to breathing or any harmonal changes. I have gained 5 inches on my stomach in 4 months and it has become round and hard. It looks like a wan with 7months pregnancy. Pls advice as I am really depressed. Thx

User avatar Hello,
I would start with a gastroenterologist or internist. If they rule out any GI related disorder and feel you need an endocrinologist or other specialist they will refer you to someone I'm sure. If you can't get into a specialist, you would be fine to start with a family practice doctor who could start the diagnostic process at least.

Best wishes.
