I have recurring attacks of extreme hunger, every few hours or so. Eating sometimes relieves the hunger, sometimes not. If I don't eat, I get stomach pains. Pain killers lessen the pain, but make me nauseous. The eating is causing me to gain weight.

I have been to doctors and the hospital, and have had every test (CT scan, endosocopy, etc.), but there is nothing physically wrong with me.

I am 63 and was in good health. The problem started about four months ago, and is getting progressively worse. No-one has a clue.
