some people gain easier than others...were you eating healthy foods or those that were not so healthy, maybe higher in fat? were you eating a lot more than usual? i have known people who gained a good bit, 65 - 75 pounds////you might check with your doctor, have some tests done to check it out

I agree... just ask your doc for a thyroid test. I've known people who put on 75-100 lbs without realizing how fast they were actually gaining.

I have a low thyroid. You may have hypothyroidism based on the symptoms other than weight gain. I have never known anyone to gain weight that 'fast' as a result of thyroid problems. But then that could still be an underlying problem.

I'd see your doctor, it is a matter of a very simple TSH blood test. No biggie, better to put your mind at ease.
