I'm sorry to hear about your struggles. I did a bit of research and found the following definition:
A third, less common, type of headache is called a psychogenic headache. Psychogenic headaches are similar to tension headaches, but the cause is an emotional problem such as depression. Signs of depression include loss of energy, poor appetite or overeating, loss of interest in usual activities, change in sleeping patterns (trouble falling asleep, waking in the middle of the night or too early in the morning) and difficulty thinking or concentrating.
It is similar to what you wrote in your most recent post. I found it interesting that this definition states that psychogenic headaches can be caused by depression. My doctor has often mentioned that they don't know whether my headaches cause my depression or vice versa. Depression is an imbalance of chemicals in the brain, which can also be the cause of migraines. One would hope that if depression is causing your migraines, then by treating the depression you will be able to treat the migraines.
Unfortunately, we've found that when I don't have headaches I'm not depressed and that the depressions follow the headaches rather than vice versa. If it's the other way round for you I hope you are able to find a treatment that works.
Have your doctors recommended a psychologist or a psychiatrist? Probably most specifically a psychiatrist to help find a medication that will effectively help your depression and cure your migraines. I was referred to a psychiatrist once and didn't want to go, but found it helpful because she was able to help determine the medications I should be on.
Well, there's my two cents. I hpe you feel better soon and find a treatment that works.
Let us know how it goes.
