Should I get tested for celiac? When I was a child I was mistakenly diagnosed with anemia, and sometimes I have pains in my intestines.

In brief: Insufficient data

You need to see a gastroenterologist who will take a complete history as to when, where, after what and type of pain; do a thorough physical, and order some blood work and xray exams to determine the cause of your pain.
Celiac disease is a specific diagnosis in patients who have a sensitivity to gluten and is merely one of a large number of problems causing abdominal pain.

In brief: Unclear

What you describe is not enough to warrant testing but your doctor would have more questions.
