    The birth control pill is a notorious culprit to cause weight gain. Are you having regular periods, or are the heavy, scanty, erratic? Night sweats are a sign of menopause. I was watching a TV show and it said that an accident to the head can cause a hormonal imbalance which leads to diabetic symptoms, some of which can be weight gain or loss and night sweats. etc. Could your medicine be causing it? Your metabolism might have changed. Discuss this with your doctor. The diabetic cases I am talking about took a long time to get the right doctor to diagnose them because it isn't really diabetes it just mimics it.

    Anytime you have weight gain for no reason go to a reputable Endocrinologist. Glands are good cause for unknown weight gain.
