My sister may be gluten intolerant, but we're not sure

Hey all,

My family hasn't a clue what's wrong with my sister. My mother thinks that my sister may be gluten intolerant. 

My sister has been dealing with what my mother thinks is a bad reaction to gluten. She has had stomach pain since this past Saturday, and has been vomiting off and on since Sunday evening. She has experienced sharp pain in her stomach, a burning sensation in her stomach, vomiting, diarrhea, and awful gas. She hasn't really been able to keep solids or liquids in her stomach. 

Does anyone know what could be ailing her?

Any input it welcome and helpful.

this sounds like a sudden onset illness not an intolerance or Celiac.  Perhaps she has a stomach virus or appendicitis?  Maybe she should see a doctor?  If she isn't keeping anything in, she could be dehydrated.

The majority of the pain is in her actual stomach with some of the pain is in the lower right side of her abdomen. She's had problems with her lymph nodes being infected before; I suggested that to her, but she didn't seem to think so.
She's been checked out for appendicitis before with no result.

You'd need to see a doctor for blood work anyways if you think it could be celiac. I wouldn't rule out appendix problems yet. I had horrible stomach pains for months before doctors figured out it was my appendix. That's not common- but it does happen. If the pain keeps getting worse- don't waste time getting her to a hospital or doctors office. It took doctors a bit to figure it out because I was having a lot of referred pain- so not necessarily in the area one would expect
