Our expert says:
I would simply not start with a neurologist when deciding how to treat a migraine, though I can understand that the concern, with such severe headaches, may have been for a tumour or other primarily neuro condition - but if there were no other definite neurological signs amd symptoms other than those typical of migraine, you'd probably have done better starting with a general specialist physician. Migraines are very unpleasant indeed - I have long been plagued by them myself, I know.
Do see a general physician. There are a number of migraine specific medicines, which you dont't mention having tried, which can produce excellent results. I have never dreamed of treatingm igraine with steroids, nor heard of such a treatment and possible side-effects of steroids include psychiatric disturbances and despair.
Psych facotrs such as anciety an depression can also worsen both migraine itself and one's ability to tolerate the pain.
Depression can be srongly related to Migraine, and needs treatment in its own right. And the emotional state you describe currently, sounds very like a depression deserving its own treatment - and relieving the depression could have a valuable impact on the migraine.
DO see a general physician "internist" for a full re-assessment, and advice on checking any side-effects of the steroids, which should probably be avoided in future, without overwhelming reasons for their use
