How can migraine leading to consistent headaches and visual hallucinations be treated?

My 19 yr old son suffers from migraines. He takes medication for this, but for the past 3 weeks he has been getting migraines every day. It is taking longer for his Meds to work. He also had a migraine that left him with a headache for 3 days. He says that he what seemed like a hallucination during a migraine, he saw what looked like an animal on a table. I am really worried about the increase in frequency and intensity. The pain wakes him every morning. What kind of specialist should he see? He has had this problem since he entered puberty around 12 yrs old.

My brother has been feeling what he describes as water in his head once in awhile. It causes him a lot of head pain, migraines. It goes away for a long while and maybe a couple months later he feels it again. Please tell me what it can be and how to treat it.

Dx: Migraines: vertigo, complex - due to varying array of symptoms. Also, thunderclap ha, tension ha, (cluster ha ruled out by neurologist only based on patient classification - non-smoking 28 y/o female.) Neuro did suggest chronic pain . Hx IBS since treated with Culturelle - still has constipation w/o daily treatment. Dx: osteochondritis - specifically episodic rib spasming (posterior, axillary, to sternal - between T4-5 to T11). Depression, dx A.D.D. only 8 months ago via academic collegiate testing issues. Vertigo originally suggested due from both patient sensation of spinning and off-balance and clumsy walk and with image/vision changes/visual hallucination; Symptom: occasional mild fatigue. Tests: 1 CT and 1 open MRI in 2003 - both negative. Second MRI on T 1.0 scanner 2010 - also negative. Labs (CMP, CBC) - all normal. Medications: amytriptylline only taken at most for a week due to unrelenting fatigue and increased vertigo still noted - especially when sitting in a recliner/rocker with minimal motion; Adderall doesn t work without the current Lamictal medication (for migraines/ha) - still able to fall asleep on Adderall within 2 hrs of administration and minimal difference noted in academic ability to catch all information/ missing details. Lastly, an episode with chiropractor - ultrasound to upper back muscles causing sudden, intense, AWFUL pins/needles sensation and needed to stop after seconds - was suggested hands were on metal bars on either side of table. After that, 20 minutes later, toes of left foot fell asleep only regaining feeling 10 minutes later - then same thing with right tricep, then left bicep/shoulder, then lower thoracic/lumbar spasming adjacent to left side of spine for 10 more minutes. Probability of multiple sclerosis diagnosis vs (other neurologic/migraine issue)???
