I recommend following the "GERD TRIGGERS" entry on Webmd to help with gastric issues. Celiac affects lower digestive system, and if it is annoyed, they will see it and be able to prescribe help for you after endoscopy. It is not that invasive and is a good baseline for the future, if nothing else. You should definitely get the endometriosis treated as well — apparently it can be taken care of in the same endoscopy procedure (check with Dr on this) Here's info: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/7882623/

Celiac affects the small intestine, where nutrients are absorbed. It is very possible that the GI doctor wants a baseline endoscopy- also being aware that she has been gluten free.
The article about endometriosis is confusing, since the title mentions endoscopy, but then discusses the advantages of laparoscopy compared to the old standard laparotomy. Anyway, there seems to be encouraging ways of treating endometriosis.
