what kind of experience is it to have a status migraine episode?

VERY UNCOMFORTABLE: This implies a constant progressive migraine lasting days to weeks, fluctuating in intensity, and typically resistant to many standard migraine interventions. This can be an evolution of chronic daily headaches, with a significant rebound secondary to analgesic medications. Often however, can be treated with steroids.
