Need Help: Cat throwing up, Vet not sure what is wrong

We have a female just under a year and a male 2 yrs old. Elle our female has been throwing up for a couple months. We attempted switching foods, but there was no improvement. Rather suddenly she began throwing up more frequently (from 1 time a week to every day to 4 times a day!). She started throwing up within minutes of eating. We took her to the vet, switched to wet and the vet gave her a shot to slow down the digestion inorder to help her keep food down. She continued to throw up right away after eating. We immediately took her back to the vet, they did an X-ray and an ultra sound but couldn't find anything blocking. They kept her overnight and started giving her medication. We took her home and completed the serious of medications (now a week later), however, she is hardly eating at all and continues to throw up anything that she does eat. She has lost a significant amount of weight and we are scared. We have an appointment tomorrow morning to take her back to the vet, but we are beginning to think they don't know what is wrong. Any suggestions at all? we are trying to do everything but are really afraid we will lose her if we can't figure out what is wrong. She still behaves the same, is playing and otherwise seems healthy.

We would appreciate any suggestions or advice or questions that we could ask our Vet to help him along.

Sincere Thanks,
Melody
