Is it possible that your diet could be affecting Your weight gain?
Are You exercising and eating the correct food and in the right proportions. If You are concerned about Your weight gain is it possible for You to speak to your doctor about this and maybe get a referal to a dietician in your area?

Although I must admit I haven't a clue what your root problem might be, I have read that lack of sleep can increase your appetite. Having frequent insomnia myself I can vouch for the fact I eat less after a vaguely restful night and I eat more/notice that my appetite is greater on those days when I have hardly slept a wink.
Hope this tiny nugget of info is useful in some way and sorry I cannot be of more help.

Kind regards.
