    Hello Everyone,

    I am a male, with very abnormal weight gain. I am housebound with ME/CFS, though not bed-ridden. I have slowly gained a couple pounds per month for a few years now. All tests come up normal except slightly low testosterone and slightly high prolactin (I have a small benign pituitary tumor). Over the past few months now, I have gained nearly 30 pounds now! I am honestly getting very nervous about this. --It is hard to deal with on many levels, honestly.

    Anyone ever experience something similar? And thoughts or ideas?

    Thank you everyone for your help!

    I think 2 issues should be addressed. One would be checking you thyroid levels, and the second would be the tumor on your pituitary gland. Both of those issues could cause weight gain or weight loss.
