It seems it cold season for about the 5th time this year, but it seems that its hit me alot harder than usual.Very suddenly, I have gained about 3-4 pounds recently. Like in a day, or 2. My chest has gone from taunt to moderatley flabby. Im quite worried about it cause I havent changed my eating habits, and ive been exercising more than usual. Theres a few other things that seem to have come with this cold, but I was wondering, is weight gain an influenza symptom maybe ? or am I just getting old?does your metabolism start giving up around 16?. It seems 4 pounds is alot of weight to gain in a day

Im not doctor but it could just be minute hormonal fluctuations resulsting in your observed weight gain. Afterall you are still growing and going through puberty. Its not a long term change, your body is adjusting.

However, if you are concerned go to your doctor.

You're going through puberty! Again!

Either that or you should cut back on the Mcdonalds.

It could, or you could wait it out and see if you gain any more weight.

4 pound in one day seems very weird. It might be water collecting or something (I'm not a doctor just so you know).

I seriously, seriously, recommend you to see a doctor.

Usually you lose weight when you've got the flu, because you don't eat as much. I don't see why you would gain weight before it as a symptom. Well I do, but it doesn't work that way.

theres alot of things that can affect weight gain. 4-5 pounds isnt much it could just be water weight if you drank alot. also your body might just naturally be gaining weight. Im not sure about influenza though sorry.
