  1. For the last few months i've been getting really bloated. I'm constipated almost all of the time (and laxatives don't help). I've had random headaches for as long as i remember. Doctors at first thought it was my eyes but eventually just decided there was nothing wrong with me and i must have seasonal allergies (which all the tests came back negative for). Since June i've lost almost 20 pounds unintentionally (used to be 125 now 108) but it doesn't look like I lost any weight because for all the weight I lost from my stomach has been replaced by bloat. But ive never really had bad diarriah which seems like what most people with celiac disease seem to have. I'm also really short compared to the rest of my family (mom 5' 6" dad 5' 11" twin brother 5' 8" and me 5'3". I have super sensitive bones (I've broken 6 bones in 4 years). Lately whenever i stand up o sort of get a head rush and can't see right for a few seconds because these black dots swarm all over my vision. I've always had really thin hair and now I'm just remembering that when i was little i would get rashes that my doctors decided was eczema but now I'm thinking it might have been DH. I've also had reflux since I was 13. For 4 days last week i stopped eating gluten without telling anyone (I'm 15) and i didn't notice any MAJOR improvements but on friday i started eating it again and since then i've been really bloated and constipated. Tips on how i should ask my parents to have me tested? It can't have come from my mom's side because she has Chron's disease and before she was diagnosed they tested her for celiac and she was negative. That means she couldn't have given it to me, right? But i want to be tested because mostly all of the symptoms for celiac disease sound like mine. I tried to convince my parents about it but my mom thinks i'm being silly to eliminate it from my diet and my dad yelled about how i was going to MAKE myself sick by not eating it then eating it in a month. HELP
