Concerned about his migraines

My boyfriend of 2 1/2 years has SEVERE migraines at least every other day. They last for hours and are very debilitating to him. He has the classic symptoms and on occasion will have auditory and visual hallucinations.

It's the hallucinations that are beginning to worry me. The other night he told me the dog was trying to steal food out of his pocket (the dog was sleeping on my feet) he curses at co-workers during his migraines telling them to stop working/making noise (this is while he is at home with me and our son)
He isn't violent in fact he can barely move during his migraines.

His gums swell and are sore during his attacks (he has no teeth since they pulled them out 10 years ago because they thought that was what was causing the migraines).

It also seems that the migraines are not all the same. What triggers one will not be the same thing that triggers the next one, and what works to help one won't help another one.

He went to the dr and spent thousands of dollars and still hasn't gotten relief. He's had cat scans, been on a lot of the meds and nothing seems to help. Allergy meds help with some of the migraines but not with others. He has difficulty sleeping because if he sleeps he gets a migraine. I am just really concerned for him. Any advice??
