go back to dr she gave me some meds to take to stop the diareah omg bad idea major pain in right side , bowels making all sorts of noises, stoped taking that right away i just took one, ok go back to dr she gave me new pills to take to cause diareah (wtf?) ok took one of thoes gawd awful pain, and of course made it worse

then i developed asthmatic cough and feeling so run down and horrible then im puking and water is not even staying in me what ever went in came out with in the count of 10

so i was rushed to the hosp, i was really bad dehydrated and at one point i was passing bowel tissue had an emerg colonoscopy but there was fear my bowels were coloapsing

after the colonoscpoy i was sent home to go on a liquid diet

i go back to the dr and he said he did not find anything and that he wants a upper gi done i have to go to the xray dept on the 6th of june and wants to test for celiac

Your poor thing you are really going through hell right now. Yes you could be celiac especially if you have other celiacs in the family. Have they done any blood testing for celiac? If they haven't call your doctor tommorrow and ask for the blood tests to be done. Do be aware that those and biopsies can have false negative results though. I really hate to have to say this but if they are going to be testing you for celiac you can't go gluten free yet. I do so wish doctors would do upper and lower scopes at the same time!!!!!!!!! If you feel you can stick with the diet without a 'formal' diagnosis then continue on the diet strictly but if you are gluten free testing will have a really, really good chance of being a false negative.
