In brief: You answered

You give yourself an answer. Thyroid disease can be one thing.
This sudden weight gain requires evaluation. It is probably sudden fluid retention and this can relate to possible medical conditions that can be treated. I would recommend seeing your primary care doctor.

In brief: Stress

If i say stress, i'll be right 90% of the time.
See a physician though because this can be caused by several pathologic conditions that involve heart, liver, hormone problems, kidney problems etc.
