I think you will be better off going to see a doctor then your doctor should give you blood tests as it could be anything, may even be a thyroid problem. Thats what I would advise anyway. If you tell your doctor what you have said here then he/she will be able to decide the best course of action! Hope this helps and welcome to myLot!

i already tried to see a doctor but the latter said i'm fine.. the doctor of course noticed that i am underweight then he only suggests me to eat a lot and increase my calorie intake..

Everyones metabolism is different. Sometimes it's a good thing to have a high metabolism. If its a major problem, maybe get tested for hyperthyroidism.

Maybe you have an overactive thyroid? Should go to the doctor to get it checked.
