  1. hi am just new to this site i live in the uk ive been losing weight and my appetite seems to have shrunk i get full up easily, bloated, alot of gas, some pain, my toilet (not being crude) seems normal apart from constipation sometimes and occassional diarrohea. i have this itchy rash on my stomach for (yrs) that seems to get worse after eating certain foods. id get terrible chest pains if i eat brown bread especially. i asked for a celiac/coliac blood test i think she only did 1x antibody test but ive heard theres more to test (Endomysial Antibody Test, Tissue Transglutaminase Antibody Test, Anti-Gliadin Antibody Test, and Total Serum Test) it came back negative. so im not sure what to do now? i havent been referred to a gastroenterologist or anyone. i would like to know if it is celiac/coliac disease can any1 advse who would i be reffered to and whats the next action i should take? someone mentioned a colonoscopy, but i think as my toilet is more or less normal would the gastroentorologist not say there was no need for a colonoscopy. or should i ask for more blood tests? i dont want to just exclude gluten until i know for sure that it was celiac/coliac disease help plz?
