I've noticed some drastic changes in my body in the last (almost) two months. I've weighed 115-120 lbs since the beginning of high school. I've always eaten the same, with the exception of no meat for about a year now. I've never been a big exerciser. But, all of a sudden, in the last two months, I have gained 25 pounds!....and gaining! I have been getting really hot and start to sweat, even when the air is on. My appetite has not changed. I'm not sure if this is just something my body is changing or if I need to go to the doctors.

  • You do need to see a Dr. Could be many things, but sounds like hormone related/thyroid. I assume from the sign in (PrissyMe) that you are female. Could you be pregnant?A clinic could get you the lab tests for screening several basic functions. Should not be expensive, but you need to find out as your symptoms are not normal. Hormone issues need to be addressed or many other things can reek havoc on your body.Good luck
