During his first few years with the Minnesota Vikings, Percy Harvin had been plagued by migraines that affected his ability to perform in practice and even games.
Harvin missed three games and countless practices in Minnesota as migraines would appear and render Harvin completely incapable of performing. However, Harvin believes those struggles are officially in the past.
“I haven’t had a migraine in two years now,” Harvin said. “Been fully healthy from that aspect so everything’s been good. I’m going to knock on wood that nothing resurfaces but it’s been all great.”
Harvin was diagnosed with sleep apnea after an episode where he collapsed at practice during training camp in 2010. Harvin thanked Vikings owner Zygi Wilf and the Wilf family for sending him to the Mayo Clinic to be evaluated and to take care of him during his medical issues. With the diagnosis in place and knowing how to treat it, Harvin hasn’t had a migraine since.
The news has to be music to the ears of the Seattle Seahawks front office in knowing that their offensive weapon won’t be missing any time with them because of the ailment.
