I am celiac was starting to get better but have come down in a crash. I have been vomiting all night, weak etc. I have not gone to work as I can barely get out of bed. I had increased my intake off eggs by a huge amount so I am convinced I have developed an intolerance to them. I don't enjoy eating meat, the taste. I will eat fish but I am really concerned if I start eating a lot of fish, will the same thing happen as it did with eggs? Does anyone follow a food plan that's obviously Paelo that is helpful for multiple food intolerances, not sure if I am making sense, blame it on the brain fog today. Thank you.

community wiki I'm not a doctor. You may want to schedule an appointment with a celiac doctor or naturopath specializing in celiac, etc. if this continues.
But it sounds like you might want to try beef broth.
use reverse-osmosis filtered water, grass-fed beef bones and make yourself some beef broth.
and then just take beef broth for a while until your stomach feels settled. (It's what they used to give invalids). Then, after a while, when you feel better, try some of the beef. if you can't take it, that's fine but it's highly recommended. the other component is take some fermented foods once you start to feel better. Bubby's is good (fermented pickles or sauekraut), even if they're not organic, which she highly recommends.
or you can can find blogs about the gaps diet.
It's pretty restrictive in the beginning and advises beef broth made with filtered water and sea salt, fermented foods. Then after you stop having symptoms ( slowly introducing egg yolks, fermented home-made yogurt, etc.
She also recommends chicken broth and fish broth but I personally have issues with chicken broth because of what they feed chickens in the US (crap, crap, and more crap), even pastured chickens to a certain extent and fish broth as well. I think beef broth is the most benign.
The diet is based on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet and her clinical experience treating children with Autism, ADD, but also can help adults who have gut issues I think.
I also like it because you really decrease all the variables if you're trying to find out what causes allergies. not a doctor but intestinal permeability (aka leaky gut) can cause a lot of allergies, and as a celiac, you may have that. it's pretty serious.
you can find gaps practitioners on her page (Registered nurses, doctors,etc.) who can help you. I'm not sure but I think it takes a long time to restore your gut to health.

I'm a celiac with allergies to eggs, chicken, seafood, and nuts. I would also recommend beef broth while you are sick.
Fyi, This is what I generally eat for lunch and dinner (i skip breakfast) beef or lamb, 1 cup or less of white rice, salad/ lettuce or sauted leafy greens. Not much variety on the protein but I feel great cutting out the stuff that I was allergic to. It wasn't always this way and hopeful someday I can eat some of those things again but for right now, this is what works for me. Hope that helps.
When I get tired of eating meat, I get ground beef or lamb and make hamburger patties, meatloaf, or soup with it.

Sounds like you've got yourself a good old fashioned case of food poisoning there, not an egg intolerance (egg intolerance might not help). If you still can't keep anything down and feel like death 48 hours from now, seek medical help (go to the ER if you don't have a GP who can see you) ASAP, you might need IV fluids and medication to deal with an infection. In the meantime fluids, fluids, fluids, preferably with minerals and maybe a little sugar. If you are too weak to make broth, get someone to bring you ReCharge. Or you can just add a bit of salt to a mix of water and juice.
What would I try to eat in that situation? Canned pumpkin, almonds, rice or instant rice cereal, gluten free oatmeal, soup, potatoes, applesauce, bananas.
Moving forward when you feel better, try not to put all your digestive eggs in one basket. Sounds like you are going too hardcore on individual foods. Have you ever been treated for an eating disorder? You sound scared of food, or at least like you are looking for the one perfect thing, both can be red flags. Keep an eye on yourself.
If your digestion is weak, soup and slow cooked starchy veggies are your friend. There is no single perfect food, omnivores succeed through variety, all food has things that you can build up excesses of if eaten at every meal.
If you can't stomach meat, you may be anemic or have a messed up gal bladder or low stomach acid, and starting with small amounts of red meat (liver would be awesome too) and working your way up is the way to go with those scenarios.
Hope you feel better soon.
