Never ending Migraine

Hi there, I have had migraines for years now along with Epilepsy. The seizures have been controlled but the migraines have not.
For the last 3 weeks I have been off work due to this, I saw the GP 3 times and each time told to increase my Gabapentin (preventor,) keep taking my Sumatriptan for the pain and Phenergan for sickness.
In the last 3wks I have only been pain free for 4days. I have asked for a scan as this is unusual for me to have so many together and worried why? The GP won’t organize one, I was even admitted to Accident & Emergency with a bad one, but still no scan.
I’m exhausted, worried, and fed up…any advice?
