Nonstop hungry but not hungry

Once in few years I have this situation when my stomach has this empty feeling of constant hunger, even I’m not hungry.
When I had it first time in 2015 it started after course of antibiotics so I thought maybe my stomach is upset and the microflora unbalanced.
I visited my GP numerous times about this and she did not believe me- said nobody can have a nonstop hunger,telling me it’s in my head.
It went away after two weeks.
Similar happened about 2-3 years ago, this happened after I drunk white wine on empty stomach- again horrible constant hunger pain.
I went to Gp again- different one. He took blood tests and said all ok. Again it went away after few weeks.
Last year I had it again after strong coffee- I saw GP - she explained me that is imbalance in my stomach lining and gave me some Lansoprazole for few week.
It went away.
Now I got again- started about 3 weeks ago, after I had a wine and later staring Coffee.
It’s worse this time.
I immediately started Lansoprazole as I got a box here. It seemed working but on day 14 I had some wine etc, it came back with much stronger hunger feeling.
Literally nonstop.
It won’t go away, even I eat the whole fridge!
I thinking if it’s stomach ulcer? But I read that that hunger pain would go away if eat something but it doesn’t now at all.
It’s pretty debilitating feeling.
I’m also never drink anything ever, just mild coffee. I wonder if I’m dehydrated badly and this from it?
I’m sorry long post.
I’m not nauseous or anything.
Just hunger pain...

I’m a really poor drinker my whole life,.I never ever have a glass of water unless I have to ..just a cup of coffee in morning.
Also in last few days I woken up with completely dry mouth in night with my rongue stuck to my roofer my mouth. Could be that dehydrated, possibly chronic?

Obviously I will go to Dr if this won’t improve but I wonder if and has any idea what is it?
Thank you

It's acidity, the stomach acid makes you want to eat to get rid of it, I had that feeling in both my pregnancies. Try gaviscon and if that doesn't work maybe something stronger from the doctor?

Instead of keep calling the doctor, why don't you stop drinking what you know triggers it and drink water during the day? It's pointless wasting a Drs time if you aren't doing what are absolutely basic things to stop it

I'm not an alcoholic!
I have a wine now and then, like once a week or if DH opens the bottle, which is rare.
It happened to after Antibiotics or coffee too.

Thank you.
Yes I think I remember the dr said its something to do with too much acid in my lining.
The Lansoprazol is for it. But not longer working anymore.

When I was pregnant I had to take Zantac for a while, not sure what the medical name for that is but that used to work really well too!

Thank you.
I have a look.
I looked into the stomach acidity and it says triggers like raw onion etc. I had loads of raw onion on salad earlier this week, so I can see it must been the main triger actually.
Did you also had a heartburn?
As I dont have that, only rarely, not often.

I didn't imply you were an alcoholic.

I simply said that, as you know what causes it, you need to lessen the intake of those things and up your water before going to see a dr again

How can you function on next to no water I don't know but it can't be good for you.
I would drop wine and coffee completely (or have decaf) as they are not great for a sensitive stomach.
