In brief: Maybe, get tested...

The clinical presentation of celiac disease varies from patient to patient with either typical intestinal symptoms (see earlier healthtap answers on this topic) or a host of atypical extraintestinal manifestations.
Important complications include: malnutrition, osteoporosis, infertility, GI cancers. Up to 30% have persistent/recurrent symptoms, incomplete response, or refractory disease.

In brief: A lot of answers

There are many potential answers and you really need to see your doctor to get some studies.
Gluten sensitivity can cause some of your symptoms but there are many more common causes than gluten issue. As for your intestinal symptoms, try avoiding dairy for a couple of weeks to see if you may have lactose intolerance which is far more common then celiac.
