welcome to HealthcareMagic
Since you have good appetite but at age of 25 yrs your weight is not increasing then you are right in thinking of hyperthyroid so go ahead and get investigated.Do not worry the hormonal pill will not affect your result.Also since you are getting investigated please do CBC;ESR to find any other problems like anaemia;which can also disturb in weight gain.Get investigated and then treated accordingly.
