      Some Pre-Diagnosis Questions
      After living with bloating, upset-stomach, gas, and a bunch of other symptoms for probably a few years now I came across celiac disease and this site about two weeks ago. I never really thought of my symptoms as anything that could be wrong with me. I am a college student and as this semester started coming to an end I found myself really stressed out with finals and other assignments. My symptoms got A LOT worse and I realized that they have always gotten worse at certain times of the year when I find myself stressed (before i go back to school, beginning and ends of the semester, act). So I did a bunch of research online and figured I might have celiac.

      After basically not going to any of my classes during the last week of school I came home and went to the doctor right away. My doctor thinks its either IBS or celiac. He ordered 4 different blood tests, gave me a prescription for ibs meds and also told me to try not eating gluten for at least a month. I am still waiting for the results from the blood test to come back but have recently learned that the blood tests aren't always reliable. Since I'm pretty sure that what I have been experiencing are symptoms of celiac disease I had a few questions.

      If my blood test comes back as negative, what should be my next plan of action?

      Would I be able to get a biopsy even if my blood test comes back as negative?

      Any advice or insight is welcomed!
