They put me on topamax 25mg eventually up to 3 times a day to help with my migraines. Has anyone else tried this? Any weird side effects?
I've been taking Axert for migraines for several years now, maybe this is contributing? I noticed tingling during and after a migrane, but now have had persistent pins/needles/tingling in my tongue a week after the last migraine.

I am ultra sensitive to lights as it is and wear tinted glasses at work and sunglasses outside of work (even at night and indoor). My roommate also suffers from migraines and I would like to replace all the light bulbs w/ something a lot less hurtful.
1. Are they easy to remove & put back in? I have multiple brain issues so i have to get annual scans so i have to remove ALL my facial piercings. I cannot get any piercings that i cannot remove myself or put back in myself.
