Migraines, Sinuses And Gluten... Help? in Related Issues & Disorders Posted May 21, 2009 · Report to Admin I have "electrical charge" pain all through my face, and my sinuses are always hurting, although not infected. Is this "electrical charge" pain on only one side of your face, or only on one side at a time? It actually sounds a lot like trigeminal neuralgia, and there's a fairly high correlation between trigeminal neuralgia and untreated celiac disease. Often people who have trigeminal neuralgia also get migraines since both seem to result from a functional problem with the trigeminal nerve. You may want to talk to your doctor about it. I was diagnosed with trigeminal neuralgia a few years after my celiac diagnosis, so controlling the diet does not control the pain for me. But it's fairly common to prescribe anti-seizure medications. I take neurontin, but usually Tegretol is the first thing they'll try for trigeminal neuralgia. I often get migraines associated with my trigeminal neuralgia as well. Also, a few years back, I got a status migraine--one which did not let up for over 48 hours, and I had good results with taking predisone to get the inflammation under control.
