I can't reproduce that error. You could try to prepare a minimum
example
<http://www.tex.ac.uk/cgi-bin/texfaq2html?label=minxampl>. My
guess is that you have a set of mismatched $-signs somewhere or
you are using $-signs inside an equation-like environment?

A guess: You have \nocite{*} somewhere in your document and an
empty entry like @book{} in your .bib file?
