Status Migrainousus

So, I'm getting pretty scared right now. I've been having meltdowns every day lately, due to the intense and never ceasing migraine pain. I can't get rid of this migraine, and it's been a solid week now. My headache specialist is in a different state than me, so communication is over the phone. He put me on a 2-day steroid pill regimen, but I've already completed day 1 with absolutely no relief. If this doesn't help, I might go to the E.R. I don't know if/what they can do to help, but I don't know what else to do. My husband works at nights, which has been when my migraines are normally at their worst. I saw something on someone's blog about 'status migrainousus' (basically, a severe migraine that lasts more than 72 hours with less than 4 hours of relief). I'm going to try to go to sleep... it has been pretty rough, so I'm hoping tonight will be different.
