Hi, Karen. I'm sorry you are going through all of this.
You could try drinking protein shakes, and eating foods like cheese, nuts and meat. But if you are losing a pound every three days, then something is wrong, and you need to figure out what it is.
Having a tube down your throat is called endoscopy. I've had it done three times, and it's not bad at all. They give you medicine to put you to sleep, and then you wake up an hour later and it's all over and there's no pain.
Do you have any pain in your belly? Have you discussed with a doctor what you eat and how much?

If your doctor really believes you are anorexic, you could try keeping a food diary. Let a family member witness it, breakfast and dinner at least.
Protein shakes in a can or bottle all taste disgusting. But ones you make yourself in a blender (protein powder, fresh fruit, milk, etc) usually taste a lot better. If there's a Starbucks near you, their banana chocolate shake is my favorite!
And if you were vomiting frequently enough to produce that much weight loss, there would probably be erosions on your back teeth or other physical evidence.
You said they did tests. Do you know what tests? Did they check your thyroid and blood sugar? Do you have any symptoms at all, other than the weight loss?
