Sleep Apnea Treatment Cures Migraine For NFL’s Percy Harvin

Posted Sep 16 2010 1:51am

Minnesota Vikings’ Percy Harvin was carted off the practice field last month due to a migraine attack that caused him to vomit and collapse. After being diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea and undergoing treatment, he reports that he no longer suffers from migraines. Migraines are a major potential complication of any condition that prevent good, efficient sleep, including obstructive sleep apnea. Since we know that football players are much more susceptible to obstructive sleep apnea, Harvin’s experience is not surprising.

Did your migraines go away after starting treatment for sleep apnea? Please enter your comments below.
