HarvinPosted by Josh Katzowitz

Last year, while he battled migraine headaches, Vikings WR Percy Harvin missed more than 30 days of practice and two games (yet, it didn’t keep him from trying to fight his head coach).

But now Harvin thinks he might be migraine-free. That’s what he told the Virginian-Pilot, saying he hasn’t felt this good since kindergarten.

Harvin has been spending much of his offseason in Gainesville, Fla. –- though he did not attend Vikings player-led workouts in Bradenton, Fla., -- and now he feels there’s a pretty good chance that the debilitating headaches might be a thing of his past.

"I met a couple of doctors," he said. "There were a couple of things they found in my neck that I won't get into -- some things they found and fixed, along with diet and the rest of the things that can cause them.

"It's been great, and knock on wood, it'll continue."

But if you want to be cynical – and really, that’s why we’re here – you could make the case put forth by Will Carroll on Twitter. Namely, Harvin hasn’t had a migraine in five months. He hasn’t played football in five months. It’s probably not a coincidence.

Percy Harvin says he's migraine free

I've suffered from migraine headaches for the past 10+ years. They are horrible, a completely debilitating pain that torment with waves of pulsating, throbbing agony. Noise and light exacerbate the problem, leaving the victim unable to do anything productive. They are no joke.

For me it was muscle spasms in my neck that triggered my migraines; perhaps Harvin found that something similar was causing his? I had to go to several doctors before they were finally able to find the cause. Whatever the case, I hope that Harvin has found a long-term solution to his problem.

Obviously he's not paying attention to the labor situation.

Migraines are somewhat like cancer, just in the sense that there are a great many things that can cause and/or contribute to them... and we probably don't even know what they all are.  Add up enough contributing factors and BAM, there it is.  And the contributing factors are different per individual.  So in Harvin's case, if the impact of football is the biggest factor then yes, he'll probably start getting them again.  But if the neck thing was a huge contributing factor, maybe he'll luck out.  It's too early to tell.

CHIROPRACTIC

Re: Goober

By your logic, every profesional athlete should have migranes. Clearly "playing an intense sport" does not cause migranes.

I have my doubts. I'm guessing stress is a big factor, playing an extremely intense competetive sport may be the trigger.

CHIROPRACTIC

He went to a chiropractor on his own. No thanks to all the "experts" at the Mayo. Guess what happens? No more migranes! "This is the best I've felt probably since kindergarten!" says Harvin
