Hi I desperately need to get a diagnosis. I have seen countless doctors and Gastroenterologists...no one has been able to pinpoint my problem. My first severe symptoms were early satiety and weight loss. I still battle with early satiety every day. After one or two bites of food I immediately feel full and satisfied. I always continue to eat more food even though I start to feel full early. I also drink boost plus (a high calorie nutritional drink) and make sure that I eat a lot of high calorie foods/snacks. I weigh 134lbs and I am a 6ft 1 inch male. Family and friends tell me I look very thin and I agree, I wish I weighed my usual 145....I dont know what to do I have low energy every day. I wish I could sleep longer and not get out of bed but I have to work. I have had an HIV test, a year after having any sexual activity, which came back negative, I have had barium x-ray which showed a slow emptying of the stomach. Then I had a stomach emptying test which was fine. I have had a colonoscopy, 2 endoscopies which came back fine. I had a biopsy for H-pylori infection also negative. Does anyone, a doctor or patient who reads this know what I could have? At one time my symptoms included feeling sick after eating a few bites of food, nausea, you could call it. But my pre-dominant symptom is early satiety and low energy, not feeling like my normal self! I need my life back and doctors even ones in the family dont know what I have They tell me that I should be happy that no one has been able to find anything wrong with me! The problem is that I do feel dis-eased......Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
