Sudden fat around stomach - normal at 25?

At 25 (6Ft, 68KG), I suddenly developed a fat stomach that now goes a bit over my belt. This happened suddenly over 3 months, so fast that it feels all wierd, like it is not my body. I know that many guys have big stomachs, so I'm not sure if my case is normal or not.
That's my question - did you develop fat around the stomach suddenly, or did it come gradually?

I recently started asthma medication (Ventolin), and this started shortly afterwards. Digging around on the web, it seems like this medicine can cause muscles to relax, and I'm very worried that this is why I've developed the larger stomach. Is this reasonable, or not? I'm embarassed to go the doctor to complain about a bigger stomach, and she would says that it's perfectly normal.
I'd lose weight, but at 68KG, losing more weight will make me way underweight.
And speaking of excercise, I ride a lot of bicycle, and occasionally lift weights.
So - any advice?
