Severe headache for 5 days, help!

Last thursday my husband got a headache(never gets them) and on friday it was worse and then on Sunday he woke up in severe pain and it has not let up since. He went to the doctor yesterday and they tried some migraine spray then pills but it did not help at all. The dr. also gave hime a Rx for 800mg Ibprofin to take 3x a day for a week. I'm really scared something is seriously wrong. It's so bad he can barely function. Can't work drive or sleep. What should he do next? Please help!

I'd ask the doctor for a referral to a neurologist, who might recommend an MRI to see what's causing the pain.
