In brief: Yes

Many issues occur with weight gain.
Stress, medication, portion control, amount of calories burned in exercise can all contribute to weight gain. See your doctor for more guidance regarding this topic and see if you need to be screened for thyroid problems or any other issues such as diabetes.
