Few health issues can cause rapid increase in body weight and so you might need investigations to get this checked.

Few common causes for rapid weight gain with no other obvious symptoms are diabetes, thyroid issues,adrenal issues,medicaitons ,depression, stress and hormonal imbalance.

A clinical evaluation and blood investigations can help to understand if there are any such causes of weight gain.After that an appropriate treatment can be suggested.

Hope this helps.Please ask if there are doubts.Regards.
