Can Someone Explain This??

So I am not bringing this up in search of *tips* or seeking medical advice, more just to calm this raging anxiety...but also to think about it in terms of recovery, and for those suffering with similar questions..that the answers may lead to clarification and continuation of recovery??
I like to think of myself as a relatively educated and sane person, but I really do not understand what is going on with my body.
I have gone from going to the gym 1-2 times per week, to going to the gym 4 to 5 times per week. My eating habits have not changed, but I am gaining weight!!
It is causing me a lot of anxiety, and I really do not understand HOW it is happening, as it surely takes extra calories to build muscle, so why then am I still gaining?
Can anyone please help me make this make sense?
Also, I do rationally know that muscle weighs more than fat..BUT it scares the shit out of me...
I wonder if muscle mass vs. fat mass is even considered in assessment of eating disordered patients.
In all that I have seen in hospital, it is not. It is a matter of getting on the scale, and going from that number. It doesn't seem fair.
