  • Sure sounds like a thyroid problem to me. You need to get to your PCP for a complete physical. If he/she finds nothing wrong, then ask to be referred to an endocrinologist.

This illness is a very common one. ... hypothyriodism issue (which causes a modest weight gain and usually other symptoms) ... cortisol issue eg crushing's syndrome ... pregnancy
