With that long list, you definitely need to see a gp.

Thyroid springs to mind. Are you putting weight on?

samandkat Mon 13-May-13 18:48:16

No not really i keep gaining a pound or two then with out doing any thing it comes off again also i forgot to mention im 24

Mmm. Because underactive thyroid can cause weight gain. Assume you aren't on any other medication? Or already pregnant?

Im on sertaline for depression. Im unsure of pregnancy due to short light period which is abnormal for me took test but negative unsure what to do

I think then you will have to wait for the appointment. I would imagine the GP requesting a blood count etc. It's hard waiting but try not to think all sorts. x

would make me think more of an over active thyroid really

This sounds like the classic signs of an overactive thyroid gland.
GP will be able to diagnose this with some blood tests.
Good luck and keep us posted!

I lost weight when I had an over-active Thyroid Gland in my early 20s, but wasn't diagnosed until I was 25. I was ravenously hungry and never stopped eating, which I was told saved my life. I did have many other nasty symptoms though.
