Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin was the subject of much concern during the preseason, given his migraine headaches and a collapse at practice.
Michael David Smith of ProFootballTalk.com has assembled some new details regarding Harvin’s health, citing tonight’s NBC broadcast and an interview with Andrea Kremer.
Harvin’s hospital stay helped doctors determine that he has sleep apnea and get him the appropriate treatment. Harvin has been given a device that pumps air into his nose while he sleeps, and that seems to be working for him.
The best news is that Harvin’s doctors believe the sleep apnea was the primary cause of the migraines that have plagued him for much of his life. The breathing device is working well enough for him that he’s no longer on medication, and he may finally be able to put his migraines behind him.
