I've gained about thirty pounds in the last three years. As I gained the weight my stomach started to grow hideous stretch marks that really, really hurt. I try to keep lotion on it, but even now that I've lost 15 pounds it still feels like my skin is going to rip apart. Sometimes my belly is like jello and most times it's really hard. I don't have any known food allergies, I haven't noticed it more one time than another. The skin feels like it could rip apart regardless of jello or hard stomach. I am NOT pregnant. This has been going on since the beginning of the weight gain.
I have irregular periods - probably due to weight....not sure if that's helpful or not.
I haven't. I was hoping someone has had a similar experience either from weight gain, an allergy, or something else, so I could decide if this is a normal side effect of my weight changes or possible sign of something more that I am unaware of.
