Headache several days in row I've taken Tylenol n ibuprofen nun seems to help?

Headache several days in row I've taken Tylenol n ibuprofen nun seems to help?

Status migrainous: This may be status migranous (if classic migraine features are present) and when it persists and escalates for days, it may require IV treatment in ER or urgent care with more potent medications (ex: Toradol) to get aborted.
