My take: I think that moving to a new home may be a rather futile pursuit, due to added emotional stress, and new triggers in another place. Rather, try a preventative approach, which includes many prescription items, acupuncture, botox, occipital nerve injections, and otc items such as riboflavin, butterbur, magnesium, feverfew. See a headache specialist and seek out a successful intervention.

Migraine Headaches: Given the variety of new migraine headache medications that can abort a headache event. I question whether your diagnosis is correct, based on your medication list that includes triptans. Hopefully you are seeing a neurologist specializing in headaches as there are other types of headaches other than migraines that may be a consideration.
