I don't think I can offer much except sympathy/empathy. My migraines can hit at any time, but my worst ones seem to happen around the same time as yours, usually about 4 or 5 am. My suspicion is that I'm sleeping so deeply at that point, that the pain has to get really bad for me to wake up, and at that point, it's too strong for imitrex/sumatriptan and fioricet (even with codeine) to help. I had one of those hit Sunday that I actually went to the hospital for. Probably going to post about it later. They gave me toradol and IV fluids, and that finally made a difference. I think it took about an hour, but it cleared it up. I now have toradol tablets on hand just in case.
