Age: 24, Male , No past Diagnoses, No family history

I am having some problems getting my self diagnosed. Several test have been performed from liver, diabetes, thyroid, upper endoscopy. But nothing has been reavled. My symptoms from past 4 months

My stools are generally pale in color. Somtimes soft and floating sometimes yellow. around 2 times a day. I don't get diaherria. I am Losing hairs on my head, no such problem in my family. Frequent muscle and joint pains, I am always upset with these cracking bone sounds throught out the day. When i join my teeths together i feel they are sheving like they do when someone feel cold. But its not cold here. My biggest problem is my weight.I have been going to gym from past 1 year. I could easily gain weight. But now i am unable infact i have lost 2-3 kgs of weight. I have tried weight gainers but they are also not working. I have tried to explain these to the docter but they don't find anything wrong with me. I don't understand then why i am getting these strange symptoms.
Is there any hormonal imbalance or malabsorption? How can i make sure that what ever i am eating is being absorbed properly,

Please give your suggestions.
