In brief: Seek tertiary care

If you have missed a year's work for migraines, it is time to call in the specialists.
You are either not being treated, being treated ineffectively or don't have the right medications or the right work-up. Not throwing any arrows at anyone! you need to see a specialist in headaches and possibly at a tertiary center and get a complete evaluation. You may even need a second or third opinion.

Again, you need to go to a tertiary center that perhaps specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of complex headache disorders. a la a Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic type referral center. Good Luck!

In brief: Seriously?

Many options. If tried meds, please see a neurologist.
