Any unexplained weight loss is serious medical business. Be sure to get in to see your family doctor right away.

This is not normal, and you should see your physician for an evaluation. Without additional information, an examination and testing, I doubt any of the online consultants can offer much beyond urging you to see your doctor.

Thanks for the question, best wishes
