I know it's scary to go to the ER without insurance, but they can't refuse to treat. I'd head to the ER just because it's something so different than she's had before.
I occasionally get a different sort of migraine that is much worse when I lay down than when I sit up, it moves around with my movement (if I'm laying on my right side it will be on the right, but if I roll over the headache moves with me). I don't know what causes that particular type of headache, but I've never had anything where I touch the top of my head and it makes my eyes close, or where that type of headache has lasted that long. I've wondered if that type of headache might be blood pressure related, or some other type of pressure thing since it feels better if I sit up.
The ice pick headaches - has she been diagnosed with cluster headaches?
