Although maybe due to persistent migraine, it is possible that a different problem is causing your pain. Focal problems such as this can also be seen with jaw, dental, sinus, and cranial nerve issues. A typical migraine would benefit from sleep. Might try OTC Aleve as symptomatic approach. Might contact your doctor to see if a last minute cancellation allows an earlier visit.
