Hungry After Eating...Need Serious Help

I am 18, and for about 10 months I have experienced a bizarre phenomenon of feeling ferociously hungry after consuming almost any type of food. In other words, after I eat I feel considerably more hungry than before I began. Regardless of the volume of food I intake, the feeling is the same, and I can have an expanded and full (physically) stomach and still feel the desire to eat more.

I have:

-Tried every variation of dietary habits imaginable.
-Had an EGD done.
-Taken fluconazole (anti-fungal).
-Taken probiotics.
-Taken Phentermine (hunger suppressant).

I can say with relative certainty that I feel better when I consume foods that are fatty and sugary, or junk food, but these foods still do not eliminate the sensation. Some speculation leads me to the conclusion that it is solely a digestive anomaly seeing as how this feeling of starvation comes on a few minutes after taking in food and generally ceases hours later, but, as noted, that is purely speculation.

I can't be sure of the condition's effect on my weight, but I can say that I most certainly have not lost weight as a result. It should also be noted that aside from the miserable feeling of insuppressable hunger, I do not feel fatigued or experience any sort of cognitive hampering.

Any type of help is well appreciated. I have been dealing with this problem for quite some time and can genuinely say that I am suffering.
