I am so sorry that you are sick. Many some fruit might be okay? Bananas? You could live off those for a week. Add in some fresh raw veggies? Any local stores that carry American products? I found one importer of American food, but they are on vacation (family run). ☹️ Amazon might work. Maybe the pre-cooked eggs are fine. Read this:
We travel always with enough food to live when overseas (like a cereal bar a day). We might lose a lot of weight, but we will live. That is not going to help you now, but maybe it will help someone else.
Enzymes are playing an increasing part in both the treatment of celiac disease, and in the manufacture of gluten-free baked goods.
DSM recently showcased their new rice-based baker's enzyme, Bakezyme, at the annual meeting of Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) in Las Vegas. The product took DSM two years to develop and perfect, and promises to improve the softness and moistness of gluten-free bread.

I wish you well!
I have been a migraine sufferer for 20+ years; since a teenager. Mine have luckily been controlled by Inderal as well as a diet eliminating MSG and artificial sweeteners.
However, in May I had a major round of migraines including 4 terrible headaches, aura, nausea, and the works in 4 days. In the weeks after I experienced random numb hands and feet; occasionally just one side and other times both at once. Then it would go away. In addition, I experienced a lot of brain fog, fatigue, and random mild headaches. I have also had minor tinnitus for years.
Looking back on my previous episode of migraines, they were accompanied by what seemed like the stomach flu for a couple of days.
Something is going on so I've done some research and I'm looking towards celiac or gluten intolerance as a possibility. My senses have been heightened and I now notice that when I eat certain things I experience some symptoms. For instance, yesterday I took my kids to McDonalds and about 2 - 3 hours after I had stomach pain and a bout of diarrhea. I didn't notice these in the past or just blew them off, but it seems to be a sign of something.
I guess my question is does or did anyone experience migraines as part of celiac's?
