If your Celiac blood tests were negative, I think they were wrong.  You should ask for an upper endoscopy because what you are describing sounds just like Celiac disease.  

It is certainly a malabsorptive syndrome, and Celiac is very common now.  Don't go off gluten until you have had the upper endoscopy because it will affect your test results.  If gluten is the cause of the problem, you will have a terrible time trying to go back to eating it ever again.  

I have it.  It's a pain, but staying off gluten is worth it because I feel so much better.
