Migraines ruining life/career and no one believes me. What now?

I am a mid-30's woman with a very successful career in finance, or at least used I to be successful. I suffer from very frequent migraines and I'm pretty sure I'm about to be fired for all the sick days I have taken this year and also my projects and meetings that have been affected. [more inside]

How do I find out if some bigger health problem is causing thus depression?

What can a neurologist do for my migraines?

I've suffered from migraines all my life, but I've never see a neurologist for them. After a string of particularly disabling attacks, I'm considering asking my GP for a referral. What should I expect from a neurological evaluation? It won't be cheap, so I'd like to know more about what's involved and whether it's worthwhile, in comparison to simply asking my GP to prescribe triptans or other medications I haven't yet tried. (Bonus question: recommend a great neurologist in Sydney, Australia?)
