Love Handles are Different Size

I have always been a bean pole, but recently started gaining weight on my love handles. Specifically my left side is much bigger than my right side.
Any explaination for that?

Asymmetric love handles...I think that's the first time I've heard that!

Are you actually gaining weight, or are you just increasing in size in one particular area?  I'm not really sure what it might be.  Has your doctor taken a look?
