What could be causing chronic severe hunger pangs that are not relieved by eating any amount or type of food? I have no satiety either. I have been tested for diabetes at least 5 times. I have had blood work done, extensive, everything came back normal. I've seen several specialists including an endocrinologist. I've had this problem for years and it has greatly affected my sleep. I wake up starving, even though I have eaten a full meal right before bedtime, and I have a lot of trouble falling and going back to sleep due to this hunger. My weight has fluctuated quite a bit and I often have to go on diets of nothing but vegetables to get back to a weight I'm happy with, but this means very little sleep. The hunger started long before I began experiencing severe anxiety, but the anxiety made the hunger sensations at least 3 times as bad. If these hunger pangs are a physical problem, how could anxiety make them worse? Doctors are baffled. Other symptoms include severe debilitating fatigue and severe headaches. Severe IC (bladder). Insomnia. Anxiety. I also have more energy when I don't eat. When I eat, I become very tired and fatigued, I do not have hypoglycemia or blood sugar problems either. The hunger will prevent me from sleeping no matter how tired I am. I have not seen a gastroenterologist or neurologist yet. Wondering if there are nerves that could be irritated and give the sensation of hunger, and also wondering if something could be wrong with my metabolism.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
