Getting Tested

1 post in this topic make what could be a horribly long story very short, I want to get tested to see if I have Celiac disease. I have already been diagnosed with IBD (the we have no idea what disease you have disease) but nothing helps. I have all but one of the symptoms listed on here for Celiac disease. But because of all of my diagnoses I've had...I'd like to know for sure or not.

So...where can I get the blood work done? Do I have to see a gastroenterologist? Can I go to a lab? Can I go to a doc-in-the-box since all they have to do is draw blood? What about the health center. I just really do not have the money for this, so I'm looking for the least expensive, but also realiable way to get the testing done. (And I really don't want to do the biopsies. I've had to do that for the IBS, diverticulitis, and hmm..maybe you have Crohn's diagnoses, and that's always hurt horribly for me).

Any suggestions would be highly appreciated!!!
