The first thing I'd try would be to replace your $ and $$ w/ appropriate LaTeX constructs one section at a time:

$...$  replace with \(...\)

$$...$$ replace with \[...\]

I believe that doing this will allow you to determine where the missing $ is.

Using the begin-end pairs is better style, and allows for more facile control of spacing around display equations.
