What on earth do I have??!

Someone help me please!! For the last 3 years I have been suffering from stomach problems that are getting significantly worse. I've never really done very much about it, I tried probiotics, Zantac, pepto...until now that it has gotten so bad I can no longer ignore it. I have consistent diarrhea, with undigested food (totally undigested! Just like when it went in!), horrible lower abdominal cramping, nausea, vomiting (also undigested food), burping (undigested food hours after eating it), consistent burping, night sweats like it's nobody's business and didn't get a period for 6 months!! On top of this I have zero energy and am completely fatigued. I only go to work because I have to but after I am done working I can't do anything except lay on the couch. I have absolutely no appetite and only eat once a day, dinner, bc I make dinner for my husband and at the same time I eat for survival!!! I spend many mornings crying when I see the toilet and visit it multiple times a day, praying to God to help me! The few times I don't have diarrhea (bc I was only able to eat rice since my stomach was so upset), I will have blood mixed in my bowels as well as on the tp and GROVES, very significant groves on my stool! Any time I eat my stomach SWELLS and gets huge!! I look like I'm 9 months pregnant!M
A little about me, I am a 28 year old female who is otherwise healthy. I am vegan (partly to see if it would help my stomach issues--it didn't although cutting out dairy helped). I went to the doctor me he tested me for celiac and crohns through blood and bowel tests and everything came back normal!! I'm so upset! I was sure I had crohns! I have all the symptoms ! I couldn't believe it. My experience with the doctor was so horrible. I had to call so many times for the results-- I was just waiting in agony, but thankful I would at least soon know what was wrong. After I kept calling my doctors office and got the results from his nurse, my husband called to speak with the doctor bc he is seriously concerned for my health! He said "you can't tell me nothing is wrong with her when I can clearly say that is not true!!"
I am so weak just doing 10 minutes of light gardening almost made me faint today. I get so dizzy throughtout the day and have to sit down in order to not faint.
The doctor yelled at me that nothing is wrong with me and I was so shocked at how he was treating me I almost hung up in him but I am so desperate to know what's wrong.....
Why would a young girl spend her time calling and going to doctors if nothing was wrong?
I have an appointment with a specialist at ucla in a month. My insurance will not cover it but I need someone to at least take a look at me and take me seriously! I'm desperate. Does anyone have similar symptoms? Also I feel as though I have to try harder when I urinate now too! Not sure if it could be related but I never had this issue before.

Hi im so sorry for what you are going through hun..
For the love of God... what is it with medics n saying theres nothing wrong with you.. clearly there is !!
Is not realy that they are to incompetent or lazy to work out just what is wrong. Argh they make me so mad..
Please please stand your ground with them and demand they do what they are paid for. If you can get another gastro doc who actualy cares n does a proper job of helping you.. dont be fobbed off.
Best wishes n hope you get to feel better soon 💕
