Can someone help answer some questions?

OK had a colonoscopy in feb 2012. They did blood test for celiac disease but they said it came back normal. They took biopsies of colon. Also had Endoscopy too the same time as colonoscopy. They said everything came back ok except they found inflamation in my small intestine and the doctor wants me on a Gluten free diet. And yes I was having the major diarhea and cramps and the gas and the egg burps what I call them. But the nurse never came out and said I have celiac. And they didnt give me a return visit. They told me all of this over the phone. I do finally feel better without gluten, but I am still learning and can definately tell when I have eaten something that has gluten. So do I have celiac or just inflamation in my small intestine? Also don't know if this means anything but last year they found nodules in my thyroid they are watching and a few years ago I had a very bad allergic reaction from the sun on my face and arms. Thanks for any info.
