Does anyone get burning skin as a migraine equivalent or before a migraine.  I know this is a weird question, but I have had this for the last couple months, and haven't had the migraine that I usually get, which I get when I'm ovulating or menstrating.  Instead I have this burning.  I can't take it anymore.  My skin is like its on high alert.  I can't get to my neuro until Sept 21.  YIKES!!!
I am starting to worry that I have some type of neuropathy.  I had 2 brain MRIS and 1 c-spine MRI-normal.  All my bloodwork has been normal also. 
Thanks for your time, Jen

Hi Jenny,

Sorry to hear that you are suffering with this. Try not to worry, I know it is easy for me to say. Personally I have not experienced anything like that and would suggest that you talk to your Neuro about this.

I know the 21st seems like a long way off, but it will soon come round hang in there. Please let us know how you get on.

take care

Dear Jenny,

I will occasionally run a temperature when I get a full-blown migraine.  Fairly frequently I will get the cold sweats which are just miserable.  I will get wringing wet.  After the sweats are gone, I generally can go to sleep, and try to sleep through the migraine.

What you might want to try for your situation, and now is the prime time, check your stores like Wal-Mart or Target for their remaining stock of suncare products.  You should be able to find a sunburn remedy that has an aloe base with lidocaine included in it.  Don't get anything that has other ingredients in it.  The lidocaine will will numb up the skin surface, and the aloe will soothe the skin and keep it from drying and cracking.  Other ingredients could be oil based, which will just keep the skin slick, and won't help the condition.  This is great for all kinds of itchy or burning skin conditions.

Try it out and let us know if it helps.
