Hi- well there are a lot of reasons to lose weight and that is a lot of weight in a short amount of time- and you need a work up for this. Common causes include infection- like tuberculosis, HIV; endocrinological- such as hyperthyroidism or adrenal issues and cancer. But you need lab tests, X-rays and perhaps even a CT scan. The sooner you get this started - the better. I would make an appointment to see your regular doctor this week. Please keep me posted. I hope this helped. Please leave positive feedback for my time and expertise :-)
