Underweight
I am underweight. I eat but don't put on. Am I suffering from thyroid related disorder? My father was also thin at this age but unlike me he was better. I have migraine issue for which I consume Naproxen sodium (250 mg)when I experience the pain. I am a PhD student and sometimes I am irregular in taking meals. Regards.

You could be underweight because of poor diet habits,and inadequate meals.Genes could be playing a role as you said your father was thin.However, you should undergo a evaluation by a Physician and get tests done including Thyroid function tests.
