Percy Harvin 'Doesn't Know' If Sleep Apnea Is Causing Migraines

Earlier we noted that Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin is suffering from sleep apnea and that may be the cause of persistent migraine headaches that have limited his playing time.

Judd Zulgad of StarTribune.com reports that Harvin is still unclear whether treating the sleep apnea will cause the migraines to go away.

“I don’t know if it’s the solution,” he said. “I know one of the main causes of migraines is a lack of sleep, so with the tests they were showing that I wasn’t going into a deep sleep. I was always waking up and things like that.”

Harvin, who missed most of training camp following the death of his grandmother and then the onset of migraines, has not had an episode since the diagnosis.
