I empathisize with you. I appreciate the frustration that you have not feeling well while being undiagnosed despite multiple tests. We can not provide any direction without knowing the details of your symptoms as well as the specific results of the tests. The weight loss is worrisome. If your physician remains unable to find the cause, then you should ask for subspecialty evaluation by a gastroenterologist or even a second opinion from a gastroenterologist.
