If it turns out that I am gluten intollerent, this allergy has almost ruined my entire life. I am a 22 year old college student. I used to get straight A's in High school and freshman year of college but now can barely even pass some of my classes. The crazy thing is I went from one of the smartest to dumbest in all the classes i've been in. It has been very frustrating past couple of years. I have had such a hard time focusing in class that I can't seem to ever get anything out of lectures. Also I seem to always have really foul smelling gas odor coming from me all the time. It's as if i'm always passing gas even when i'm not aware. I can see people covering their noses when i'm near them. The smell has caused me to isolate myself from others for their own good and mine as well.  I  always here rumbling sounds in my stomach even when i'm not hungry. The food that exploits my symtoms the most  for me is pizza for what ever that is worth.  I had a stool sample done  about a year ago before I knew anything about gluten intollerence and it came back normal. Do you think they even checked for that? I didn't tell them about my struggles in school at the time and my attention span of a dog.

Stool samples don't check for celiac disease. celiac disease is not an allergy, by the way. Lactose intolerance can also cause a lot of gas. Go to your doctor and get the blood test for Celiac before you eat gluten-free.

I forgot to mention in my orginal post that I also had a routine blood test done as well.

Routine blood work doesn't test for Celiac. It is a specific set of tests.

Do my symptoms sound like a sensitivity or intollerence?

They sound like Celiac Disease, not a vague sensitivity/ intolerance. Get tested before going gluten free. This website has a lot of good info:

Difficulty concentrating could cause trouble in celiac.  Probably many other things could cause it too.  Celiac caused me brain fog and extreme fatigue.  I hope you will get to the root of the problem.  You may as well be tested to see if celiac is the problem.
