i know its expensive, but I would Really try and find a neuro. you can go to. they are the ones who will be able to help you.
You need to try a preventative, like Topamax or something (mention it to your PDOC), an abortive, like imitrex or zomig, and something for rescue pain, mepergan is good b/c it has phenergan in it.(pain meds, no more than 2 a week, including OTC)
These are some step you and your doctor can start with, but I would really see if you can afford seeing a neuro at least once, and maybe get on a payment plan.
I'm so sorry you are suffering with this. I am 21 with severe migraines, though not the type you have(i've had one like yours, scared me to death).
We will all try and do what we can for you and offer you the best support we can.
Have a blessed week.
