Bloating, Diarrhea, Skin Rashes And Migraines. Gluten Allergy?

Hello,
If someone is tested for a gluten allergy and the test is negative, is it still possible to be allergic to gluten and have the test not be positive? I have a lot of symptoms bloating, diarrhea , skin rashes and migraines. All of the symptoms besides the migraines occur everyday. Since stopping the consumption of gluten those symptoms are now very rare. Am I gluten sensitive or what would you call it?
