What is the cause of weight gain and excessive thirst in one under extreme stress ?

I m a teenage girl and I m 5 4 . Lately I ve been a lot more physically active than I normally am and very stressed due to school. I ve always weighed around 112 pounds but in the past months I ve gotten to 120 lbs and I am constantly thirsty. I ve been a lot more hungry as well. Do you think this is just something to do with stress? Or is this something more serious?
