I would get a test Jessica. I have no idea what may have caused your weight loss, but it's rather excessive so you should go and see your doctor to get his opinion

Going to the doctor is a very good idea. Uncontrolled diabetes may lead to weight loss.
Various reasons can be causing your sudden weight loss, such as bacterial infections, hormonal changes etc; best get it sorted sooner rather than later.

I would go and see your gp to get tested or pop into any Lloyds pharmacy for a free test
