Celiac?

I realized this weekend that Spring is one year since my license was taken away the first time due to seizures. While I now have it back (technically), we are no closer to finding out what is causing them.

Sigh.

This weekend I was talking to my cousin Jill, she was telling me how she was diagnosed with Celiac.  Both my uncle and cousin now have it.  It's weird, Jill and I have been talking about this for years and we both have very similar symptoms and were both told we had IBS.

But now Jill's is Celiac.  I have never been tested specifically for it, although it was surmised that I was gluten intolerant.  This thinking goes back as far as 2010.

Now however, I'm thinking it's probably a good idea that I get tested for Celiac.  Why?  I did a little research on the symptoms.  Outside of the IBS type symptoms (which I have), I also noticed the following:

1. Seizures
2. Low B12
3. Gallbladder issues
4. Nosebleeds

Uh....that is me to a tee.

I have been taking B12 supplements for a long time because I am always told I'm low.  I had my gallbladder out due to gallstones in 2013 and well seizures are the issue that started this whole thing.

Wouldn't that be crazy if Celiac is at the root of all of this.  Who knows though right?  At the very least I can get tested and either rule it out or finally figure out the problem.
