Can't get IV abortives at A&E in the Uk. Help.

I have had a epic 9-day status migrainousus and spent a day in hospital trying to get rid of it. But they won't give me any IV medication - no magnesium sulphate, no DHE, no keterolac - just ineffective Triptan pills.

What gives? What do I have to do to get the most effective abortive medicines? What can I do?

Please help, I'' pretty desperate.

  1. Anyone? I am missing something obvious, I'm still very new to having migraines (this is only my 4th ever). Do I need a headache specialist for such things? Is there any way of making this go away so I can funtion again, I've barely eaten or done anything for 10 days now.
