should I do another endoscopy

I had 2 blood tests, in mid 2009 was negative, in late 2009 was postive. I had endoscopy at end of 2009 but stopped eating gluten as doctor did not advice me to keep eating it until after endoscopy, so I only ate gluten 2 days before...so endoscopy was negative. After the endoscopy I stopped eating gluten anyway for other health reasons. I never had any pain or anything prior stopping gluten. But now after more than a year gluten free, I find that if I eat gluten accidentaly I get pain. Not sure if it's because I am Celiac or because my body just doens't like it now and now is intolerant to it.

Should I have another endoscopy? Being gluten free is so difficult, especially when travelling and going out to restaurants, parties etc.

I'm just annoyed that now I get pains and before I never did.  Same happened with milk, I have stopped drinking it as I only drunk it with cereal... now I get pain if I eat yogurt etc

I would probably request another endoscopy.  You may be gluten intolerant or allergic to wheat, soy, etc.  If it were me, I would want to know.
