I recently went for blood work and am waiting on results. Does anyone feel celiac's could possibly be an option corresponding to my symptoms?

Sounds like celiac symptoms. There are other things it could be. It is important to keep eating gluten (wheat, rye, barley) until the medical tests are all done. The tests are usually an blood draw for testing antibodies to gluten (gliaden) and later an endoscopy to check for damage to the gut villi). The test results usually take a couple weeks in each case as they send the samples to a lab for analysis. If it does turnout to be celiac we can help you with getting started in the gluten-free diet.
There are conditions that have very similar symptoms to celiac are different though. One is called NCGI (non-celiac gluten intolerance). They don't have any test protocol for that yet, so the best test is to go on the gluten-free diet for 3 to 6 months and see if you improve.

A few cases of diagnoses have had the gall bladder removed to be later diagnosed with Celiac.
