I am a pretty healthy 33 yr old male. I just started noticing since last night that my lower left side of my abdomen (love handle area) has started to swell up a bit. i can grab a full handful of skin on my left side where it is only a pinch of skin on the right side. I am not sure what caused this. I do know that I ate and drank alcohol more than i usually do due to friends visiting from out of town.

I am trying to find out if this is a common problem for many or a precursor to something serious... Thanks in advance
