Question:

I have noticed for some time that the right side of my body is much bigger and fatter than the left side ie: upper arm, thigh, calf, bottom. It is quite noticable my daughter pointed it out the other day and now i really want to curl up and hide from the world. Why has this happened as i was the same before i had children and put on weight is their a name for this condition? Please help!

Answer:

Since the swelling is so noticeable and relates only to your right side, I would suggest that you consult your family physician.  There could be a number of reasons for this swelling.
