Sorry if this is in the wrong forum!
I am a 15 yr old male, and am wondering if i should get tested for celiac disease. My sister and dad have it, and for a long time now my stools have been VERY smelly and within the past 4 months i have been getting increasingly forgetful and depressed. For many years i have had an unpredictable digestion (one day constipated, the next diarrhea) and stomach pains were diagnosed as bad acid reflux (low gamaglobulin something???)

Am i right in thinking the above are possible symptoms?

Should i get tested?

Thanks.
