See your doctor: With these kinds of symptoms and their persistent nature, it's best if you see your doctor. He/she will listen to you, do an examination, possibly run some tests and let you know what's going on.

Consider this: If an abortive triptan is to be successful, must be taken within the first 30-60 min of migraine. If current med is ineffective, other triptans, via nasal spray or injection might work better. However, the best approach perhaps is prevention, and both prescription and otc preps work well. See a headache specialist, and get treatment modified.
