Percy Harvin hopes he's solved migraine problems
After two seasons in which migraine headaches have knocked Percy Harvin out of games and most of training camp last year, the Minnesota Vikings wide receiver believes he may have found a solution.
Harvin told Ed Miller of the Virginian-Pilot that he hasn’t had one of the crippling headaches for a half-year, good news for the Vikings, who have gone to about every measure you can imagine to cure his ills.
“This is the best I've felt, probably, since I've been in kindergarten," Havin told Miller.
Harvin wasn’t very revealing but he was cautiously optimistic he has a new formula for health.
"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."
This would be terrific news for the Vikings, who have had more issues with migraines involving Harvin than the Gators did when he was at Florida. Of course, he hasn’t been feeling the stresses of an NFL season. We’ll see how he does then, but the hope is maybe he’s on the right path.
