Ok

Wheat intolerance or gluten sensitivity can only be confirmed with the help of investigations

You must have blood test for this problem if you have symptoms for so long

Usually antibodies like anti-TTG and anti-endomysial antibodies are helpful in diagnosing this condition

Please do let me know if you have any other question

Will it have anything to do with the IBS I have?

IBS can have such symptoms as well but since it is a functional disorder so if there is a suspicion of anything else like a Celiac disease then further investigations must be done

Please do let me know if you have any other question
