Unintentional weight loss

I am 27 years old and have had unexplained weight loss for the past 1.5 years, going from my normal weight of 115 to 90 lbs (5'2). Diagnosed with Grave's Disease one year ago and have been treated with methimazole for the past year. My thyroid levels normalized quickly and are closer to hypothyroid than hyper now. I lead a sedentary lifestyle/haven't changed my eating at all but I keep progressively losing more wt as the months pass. This seems unnatural to me but doctors do not offer any help as to what could be causing this. Anything else besides hyperthyroidism that can contribute to low weight? (again I have been treated for hyperthyroidism for one year now). Other symptoms -random nausea some days.

Wow this site is so helpful. Gotta make sure to answer the guy who has a red line on his hand - so life threatening!
Turned out to be cancer. In case anyone else has this symptom.
We can't offer diagnosis on this website. Weight loss can be caused by many different medical or non medical issues.
I am sorry but all we can offer is possible suggestions if we think they may be helpful.
I am truly sorry about your cancer diagnosis.
