In brief: Get tested

Your primary doc can order the blood screening tests that can identify the population at most risk for celiac disease.
If this comes back positive s/he can refer you on to have confirmatory testing (biopsy for severity)done through a gastroenterologist. You need to be consuming some gluten for the 3 wks prior to any testing for it to be accurate.
