Have you tried chiropractic or acupuncture for the headaches?  That might help him, if he can stand it.

I agree with trying Chiropractic care. It can do wonders for a person. =)

CranioSacral Therapy may also be able to help if you can't find a food related trigger.  CST is very gentle, very relaxing, and can help with headaches whether they are triggered by muscular tension or from bone misalignments.  No cracking needed:)

Have you had his eyes tested? Could be that. I agree with the cranio sacral or chiropractic. An allergy perhaps? Maybe try listening therapy if those dont work, like AIT, or even something called brain balancing.

I agree.  Also, have you looked into vision therapy?  It could be a vision problem (other than how well he can see - how does he process?)

 I have got his eye's tested in the hospitals too, and they have told me there's nothing wrong there, he seam's to get these headaches at certain times of the day too, when he is mentally challenged at school, or has had physical exercise the headaches happen after the come down, they will disappear when he gets vomits. I have told many doctor's this, I have taken note of all your lovely comments and I will definataly look into the idea's you all have posted, thankyou
