I suspect a pituitary tumor as you are gaining weight. It is important that you find a good center, like a pituitary center, for treatment if this is the case. You have to know the type in order to know the treatment.
If it is another type, then you still need to get to the appropriate center for treatment.
Get copies of tests. Find out.
I had Cushing's disease and it made me gain a lot of weight.
