Out of options!

I am 32 yrs old and in the last 3yrs I have been hospitalized about 3 times once for a full 2 wks. My migraines are extremely bad I have left side weakness in both face and limbs, blurred vision, Nausea, and my insomnia gets really bad during these episodes. I sometimes become unable to care for my kids. I have tried several cocktails of medication, DHE, and botox. They stopped the botox because it wasn’t giving enough of a relief. I’m not sure what other options are out there or if I’m going to be stuck like this and for how long. It kind of scares me because I can go a couple of weeks and be OK but every time they come back they last longer and the symptoms get worse. I have been dealing with migraines for the last 12 years and they have gotten 10x worse over the years.
