Starving for answers

I’m suffering from extensive hunger. I’ll try and make a seriously long story short. It started about 5yrs ago and 135 pounds.
I was out with friends at a club and had the worst symptoms ever! If you go to a severe hypoglycemia page to view the symptoms, I had all of them except for the seizers. This went on for, well, the worst of it for 2 years.
Now, I’m at 212 pds and can’t lose a pound! The severities of my symptoms are not as bad now. I can sleep now through the night without waking up soaked and starving to death. I’m not kidding, the hunger would NOT go away. I’ve become food sensitive.
Even with fruit and sugar foods. I’ve done and tried everything and had every test imaginable. Everything is always normal.
They can’t even tell me why I passed out 3 times! My blood sugar was always normal. They did send me for a glucose tolerance test, those results came back abnormal. The doctor just said I could go either way, diabetic or hypo. That was it, I haven’t had one done since.

I have to eat something before I go to bed. Bowl of cheerio’s with skim milk or a cheese stick. If not, I wake up around 4 am starving. I eat healthy foods but no matter what I still have episodes where I have no energy, tired, just a sick yucky feeling and never ending HUNGER! I’ll eat lunch at work, one hour later STARVING! Turkey, whole wheat, light mayo with lettuce. ½ cup cottage cheese, and a yogurt. I could eat a burger and fries and I would still be hungry an hour after! I break my meals up so I eat all day. Munchie foods, almonds, yogurts, and one fruit I can eat are granny smith apples.

Any ideas on why this is happening to me?
