36 year old female here. For the past month and a half or so, I have felt pain in my lower back/seat area whenever I sit and sometimes when I lie down. The more I sit, the more it hurts. It even hurts when getting up, and is sometimes quite intense.
A few days ago, I started noticing red blood in my stools. My stool pattern has been alternating betw...
Hi. My doctor said I have a migraine variant, just not hemiplegic migraine. I mentioned the back pain, however he paid it no mind. He focused on the migraine diagnosis. My genetic testing came back negative. I trust what he said. Thanks again.

No testing was done other than a CBC and metabolic profile.
It was hard to tell from reading online (I like to e...

Hello and thank you. My doctor said it could be a side effect of the Topamax. My doctor also recommended fluid increase, which I have been doing. In fact, I bought a bottle of water right after I got off the telephone with them.
They said to call on Monday if the symptoms did not go away and they would do labwork as a precaution.
Thanks again. I love t...
By the way, I tried to type the subject "can Topamax cause parasthesia a months after increase?" However the cat jumped on my tablet and the submit button got pressed before I had a chance to finish typing. :(
