  1. The blood tests always come out perfect. The doctor never knows what to tell me. He has tested for everything humanly possible. Every visit I am tested. Every visit I am told that he doesn't know, and the symptoms are perplexing. Since I was 12 years old I have had this sharp pain in my lower left abdomen to my back after eating something that contains gluten. I figured out the pattern when I was 15. My aunt has had celiac disease since she was 16, and my sister has had it since age 10 or 11. Both of them have it bad. I'm 17 years old, and the pain in my side lasts for several hours to many days, accompanied by a headache and nausea, even if I have just one little bite of something containing gluten. I feel a lot better if I am eating gluten free, no pain at all. BUT. Strangely, I have been in nonstop pain, been nonstop sick and tired since Tuesday night--when I had a piece of pizza that contained gluten. I usually heal and stop hurting within a day and a half, but this is the 3rd night I've felt like this, even though I have only eaten crackers and soup for the last 3 days (both of which are gluten free, or so they say). Could this be celiac? If all tests come out normal, and I haven't yet had a camera down my throat, is it still likely to be celiac? Is the last resort to find out an endoscopy? Thanks in advance for the help.
