Rapid weight gain doesn't fall into diabetes symptoms. Some diabetes symptoms include:
    * Frequent urination
    * Excessive thirst
    * Extreme hunger
    * Unusual weight loss
    * Increased fatigue
    * Irritability
    * Blurry vision

Some possible other causes for rapid weight gain could be heart failure, liver disease or kidney disease, Cushing Syndrome, or polycystic ovary syndrome.
Its time you see your doctor.

you need to see a doctor for a checkup.  In particular you need to get your thyroid checked.
