Maybe another round of prednisone?

Are you chronic or episodic? Anyway, see if your doctor will put you on a short course of prednisone; say 40mg for 3 days, 30mg for two days, 20 for 2 days, 10 for 2 days, 5mg for 2 days, then off...It gives time for me when switching between drugs that either have stopped working and will work again after I'm on something else for a while... or just time for a break when whatever we tried didn't work at all...

See also the comments below on dealing with the headaches with cold air and strenuous exercise at onset of pain....But it's much nicer to be up at night from the prednisone than from the headaches.

Pain free days and nights!
