> Hi Chloe -
> I wonder if your reaction to anticonvulsants has something to do with experiencing an atypical cerebral vasodilation effect. Topamax does list this as an occasional side effect. If that is the case, then perhaps you could add something that causes vasoconstriction, like a stimulant. Maybe you could try for one day drinking lots of strong coffee, and see if the pain goes away.

That is interesting...There are so many "weird" side effects associated with these meds. I am thinking it's the seroquel that is causing my burning feeling now. I read that it can cause inflammation of the skin. My scalp and skin all feel like I have a bad sunburn. But it can be more intense at sometimes than others. I think when I get agitated and sweat, the pain if more perceptable. But the Seroquel is helping so much, I don't want to ditch it. So I will keep looking for answers and tolerate it for now.

> Good luck. It must be very frustrating to know that you need a stabilizer but can't tolerate one.

You couldn't be more right. Thanks so much for the imput, and I will look into the atypical cerebral dilation stuff.
Many thanks,
