In brief: Check thyroid

Overactive thyroid gland is common, adrenal less common cause for high metabolism. Can be treated with medication or surgery as indicated if present.
Consult with dr. Then nutritionist if all hormone levels are normal.

In brief: Gaining weight

Gaining weight is simple math -- you need to take in more calories than you burn -- a healthy high calorie diet with some protein supplementation (carnation instant breakfast, boost, ensure) should help.
