In the meantime... there are some things you & son can do to help his doctors help him. If you haven't already...
Keep a headache log.
For examples/samples, Google: headache log
and use one of those, or tailor your own. If your son is into it, he may even enjoy making up his own on Excel, Visio, etc. and tweaking it to his own needs/situation.
Learn all you can
about headaches & migraines to help figure this puzzle out.
Google: migraine types
Google: migraine diagnosis
Google: migraine treatment
Google: migraine prophylaxis
and anything else you can think of. The more you learn/know about these cussed things, the better you can help...
Is his doctor a migraine
specialist (not just a neurologist who says he knows/treats headaches/migraine) - one whose practice is limited to just
migraines? This can make all the difference, if you can find one.
