Hi. Yes. Can you please tell me what s going on with me? I went to the doctor for a blood test and everything came back fine. No signs of diabetes or thyroid problem. But I ve gained a Ton of weight, I m tired all day, moody, frequently going to the bathroom and always thirsty and drinking only water. I also do not believe I m pregnant, took that test too. Thank you and please help?! Could it possibly be depression or anxiety that s causing all this?

in your case following may be reason-
1) depression - emotional eating." This is a response to depression and an attempt to fill a void in your life through food

Endocrinologist Dr. V. Kumaravel's  Response

your concern seems to be related to weight gain, thirsty and mood disturbance. since your blood investigations are normal, i presume most of your medical condition are ruled out. depression can cause these features but it is difficult to comment without examining you in person.
